Asked to present a brief sketch of myself, I felt a little abashed- 
after all, what -constitutes this entity — me? Not that I necessarily 
have an identity conflict, I felt a subject relating to me, or attempt, 
ing to write about my nebulous nature, my vacilating moods, etc. 
would border on the ambiguous, and perhaps confuse more than 
clarify. So, I shall merely relate a thumb nail sketch about my 
background, not my physic. By background, I mean that which I 
can say publicly without propriety. In other words, I'm not going 
to relate that I was a juvenile delinquent, a bully in school, a wild 
man about the campus, a rebel, etc. 

I am an aborigine of Idaho.. I grew up there, in the conservative 
atmosphere, an iconoclast and a liberal. The reason I claim to be 
a native is that I have Indian blood whooping through my veins; my 
Bannoch brothers are now peacefully and poorly settled on the Black- 
foot Indian reservation. 

After attending my freshman year at Santa Barbara, I transfer, 
red to Idaho State University and matriculated in 1968 with a B.A. 
in English and Social Science. I commenced graduate work in 
American Literature, but then, as some are prone to do, decided 
my forte was in student personnel. I began my masters program 
in Guidance and Counseling the same time I started teaching at 
Pocatello High School as Forensic director. After an interesting 
year with the young set, and many graduate hours later, I as- 
sumed my various roles here: Student Activities coordinator, Men's 
housing director, College Union director, and eventually, if I can 
squeeze a few hours out of my day, assistant wrestling coach and 
Speech lecturer. It's no joke when I say "variety is the spice of 

have a definite feeling, though, I don't think I'll be bored 

live." I 

It has been reported that I'm single and I validate this by saying 
it's not that I don't want to, It's just that no one has asked me, which 
accounts for twenty.four years of bachelorhood.

A great deal of controversy has been generated recently by the 
question of how deeply Involved the student body should become In 
Issues outside the realm of student government, I.e., those involv- 
ing moral or political questions, such as gun legislation and the war 
In Viet Nam, more particularly the question has been asked concern- 
ing how deeply Involved the Echo should become in debating these is. 
sues. Certainly there Is a need now for an editorial policy by the 
Echo concerning these affairs. 

Last year there was a great deal of dissatisfaction with the Echo 
because it dealt with affairs on the national level more than It should 
have. This statement seems justified when you consider that last 
year the Kingsmen, while compiling an enviable record of 9 wins 
against only 1 loss, were written up only twice in that ten week period. 
Two articles to cover ten gameslll During the same ten-week period 
there were seventeen articles that concerned themselves with such 
varied and pertinent topics of student Interest as the Kennedy 
assassination, the War In Viet Nam, and Gun Control Legislation. 
Obviously there seems to be here a case of misplaced emphasis. 

There is no doubt that the Kennedy Assassination, the War, and 
Gun Control Legislation are stimulating topics for conversation and 
speculation, but aren't these topics covered sufficiently well In the 
L.A. Times, and yes, even the News-Chronicle? 

If the Echo Is to be at all relevant It Is going to have to hit closer 
to Issues at home. There are numerous Issues which hit our daily 
lives with more impact, and which are desperately In need of solu- 
tion. If the Echo Is to be effective, it is going to have to come to 
grips with Central issues, even if it means neglecting Peripheral 
Issues such as the assassination and the war. 

Sure, as long as we keep discussing National Issues there's no 
danger of upsetting the Administration, but what fun is that? 

For those cynics wno doubt there is anything on the CLC campus 
worth discussing, consider the following partial list of topics per- 
tinent to the upcoming CLC year. 

0) The previews we've had of the Food Service so far only serve 
to accent our dire need of a qualified chef. As long as we pay more, 
we might as well get our money's worth. 

(2) Last year's student Senate was a farce and a sham. If this 
year's Senate can't do any better, wouldn't it be wise to totally 
abolish that body and Institute a system of specialized committees 
(which were experimented with at the Las Vegas Retreat and proved 
remarkably effective.) 

(3) The possibility has been raised that the current system of 
women's hours is in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It 
Is definitely In violation of any semblance of responsibility on the 
part of women students. Men students have the alternative of stay, 
ing out past eleven on school nights, and still maintain their GPA's. 

Should It be assumed that CLC women have the common sense re- 
quired to know when their bed time is, whether the Administration 
tells them or not? 

(4) The debate between Long Range Goals and Short Range Goals 
continues with the Regents and Convocators. Thoughtful students 
(and faculty) want facilities for improved education here and now, 
rather than in some foggy future time. Demands for much-needed 
equipment should no longer be met with the statement "You'll 
get that when we get to the North Campus." Plans for the North 
Campus are now (tentatively) set for 1973. That Is when this year's 
Freshman class graduates. Don't they deserve a better education 
NOW while they're here? 

(5) There is a need for research into the possibility of increas- 
lng the number of core requirement courses that can be waived by 
passing a basic proficiency test. This would give the student more 
time to experiment in fields outside his major, and eliminate the 
boredom of dryly going over and over material for which the stu- 
dent may have received an A In High School. 

(6) There Is a need for research into the possibility of expand- 
ing the current Pass Fail System to include courses that are re- 

quired for graduation. Student-initiated plans for this are now in the 
polishing stages and should be ready for presentation to the facul- 
ty shortly. 

The list could be continued, but here we have enough problems 
to keep us occupied for the next year at least. 

At the recent Forest Home Conference between Faculty, Stu- 
dents, Administrators and Regents, many Regents showed them- 
selves more willing than in the past to listen to the wants and needs 
of the students, who are, after all, paying 2/3 of the cost of their 
own education. There is a possibility of making some headway in 
these vital Central areas, If we neglect our delusions of influence 
on the peripheral National level and begin concentrating our efforts 
on the home front. 

My impression of the Forest Home Conference leads me to believe 
that Regents are now more open to the possibilities of improving 
the campus now than they ever were before. This year's increases 
of recreational and office spaces proves that. These solutions 
seem small when compared to the need, but now when the regents 
are at long last turning their ear to the student body's cries, let's 
not neglect our opportunities. There Is a possibility for construct- 
ive change on campus here and now if the students show themselves 
to be able to argue their case in an academic — and mature manner. 

They are ready to listen, if we've got something to say. So damn 
it, let's get It said.

Forty top student 
leaders met recently with 
Faculty, Administration, 
and Regents to discuss 
the quality of education 
at CLC. After three days 
of concentrated discussion 
and evaluation, some of 
the conclusions listed 
below were reached. 
Most important, however, 
was the feeling that at 
last something was being 
done to bridge the 
communications gap. 

Students should learn 
to express themselves, to 
contribute to society, each 
with his own abilities, to 
expand their mental facul- 
ties, to show Christian 
interest in the individual, 
to differentiate between 
acceptable and rejectable 
situations, to think and 
solve problems, to know 
the problem by first- 
hand exposure to the 
situation, to enter the 
community and relate to it. 

The church today 
recognizes the leaders 
that will be produced 
by the liberal arts 
college. They also 
believe in their 
ability to endow 
these leaders with 
sensibility and 
compassion needed 
to solve the problems 
they will face. The 
Church also needs 
these individuals to 
carry the leadership 
of the Church in the 

Invest money now in

better facilities 
needed now.

PRINCETON. N.J. (Sept. 15) — 
College seniors preparing to 
teach school may take the Nation- 
al Teacher Examinations on any 
of the four different test dates 
announced today by Educational 
Testing Service, a nonprofit, edu. 
cational organization which pre- 
pares and administers this test- 
ing program. 

New dates for the testing of 
prospective teachers are: 
November 8, 1969, and January 31, 
April 4. and July 18, 1970. The 
tests will be given at nearly 500 
locations throughout the United 
States. ETS said. 

Results of the National Teach, 
er Examinations are used by 
many large school districts as 
one of several factors in the se- 
lection of new teachers and by 
several states for certification 
or licensing of teachers. Some 
colleges also require all seniors 
preparing to teach to take the 
examination. The school systems 
and state departments of educa- 
tion which use the examination 
results are designated in the 
Bulletin of Information for Can- 

On each full day of testing, 
prospective teachers may take 
the Common Examinations, which 
measure their professional pre. 
paration and general cultural 
background, and a Teaching Area 
Examination which measures - 
mastery of the subject they ex- 
pect to teach. 

Prospective teachers should 
contact the school systems in 
which they seek employment, or 
their colleges, for specific ad- 
vice on which examinations to 
take and on. which dates they 
should be taken.

for over eleven years, and pre- 
sently residing in Santa Monica,

An idea started last year by 
CLC Drama Club and Alpha Psi 
Omega Fraternity of producing 
Stalag 17, a complete student pro- 
duction, will be carried out this 
year again, but with three shows 
planned. These productions will 
be designed, directed, produced, 
and presented by people of the 
student body. 

For the first quarter. The 
Drama Club will present Ladies 
in Retirement, by Edward Percy 
and Reginald Denham on Decern- 
ber 5th and 6th in the Little Thea- 
tre. It is a psychological mys- 
tery-drama which has parts for 
six women and one man. The 
show will be directed by Don 
Haskell, with Mark Eichman as 
Assistant. Gary Odom will bede- 
signing the set for the product- 
ion. Open tryouts will be held 
October 21st and 22nd at 3:00 
in the Little Theatre with re- 
hearsals beginning the following 

For all the men on campus, 
since it has parts for twenty-one 
men and one woman, Mister Rob- 
erts is the scheduled production 
for the Winter quarter. It will 
be presented March 6th and 7th 
in the Gym. This rowdy and 
hilarious saga of men aboard 
a Navy cargo ship in the Pacific 
starred Jack Lemon and Henry 
Fonda in the movie version which 
is incredibly close to the stage 

The third quarter show will be 
selected by the Drama Club from 
one of these three: Odd Couple, 
Any Wednesday, and Where's 
Daddy. The Drama Club will be 
meeting on Tuesday night at 7:30 
In the Little Theatre to discuss 
this subject, all of the shows, 
plans for the year, and new ad- 
ditlons to the schedule. All in- 
terested students are welcome 
to join this club and come to the 
Tuesday night meeting, whether 
you hope to get involved this 
quarter or not.

By Tee Guidotti 

First columns In the first Issue of school papers for a new year, 
the "Welcome Freshman," "Freshman Orientation," "Your School" 
type, invariably fall into two categories. Both are easy to start 
writing because they both begin identically. 

The first type is straight. It begins with "Students and teachers 
working together make a college great" and ends up with "You 
only get as much out of college as you put in." Usually written by 
the student.body president, the president or chancellor of the col. 
lege or university, or a philosophizing student newspaper editor, 
it is quite sincere and often heads up the column listing all the clubs 
and activities on campus. Such editorials or columns hould be read, 
because they are true. 

The second type is droll. It starts off with a mocking simulation 
of praise and adulation for academia, hard to tell from the real 
thing, and ends up implying that if you make it thrugh college 

you've either sold out to the establishment or bough the Adminis. 
tration. Sometimes good humoredly and sometimes not, little snide 
remarks are made to the effect that education is a con game and stu. 
dents are a persecuted minority. Usually written by cynical colum. 
nists or defeated campus politicians, such columns are often sin- 
cere and more often censored. Such editorials or columns should 
be read — often they're true too. 

By the way, we've just invented a third type — the kind that com. 
ments on other columns. 

Not being a student at Cal Lutheran, I can't honestly say "Wei. 
come to Our Campus," because if I did it would mean you were 
transferring. I will say, however, that every time I've been on 
your campus I've gotten good vibrations (or was it the April earth- 
quake). Out of collegiate patriotism, though, I hasten to add that USC 
definitely has more ivy. But then, I don't have a sink in my room in 
the dorms, either. 

Going off to college isn't what it used to be, I'm afraid. Back in 
the old days, when a handful of graduates from high school senior 
went off to school, they had already done academic wonders by get- 
ting past eleventh grade. There were those tearful family partings 
at the railway stations, the ill-fitting high collars that contributed 
to the lump in the incoming freshman's throat as he walked across 
the Old Quad to the Dean's office to present the letter of introduc 
tlon written by Uncle Fred, who had graduated from the Law School 
in '86. 

Nowadays you get your diploma and go to Disneyland. Three months 
later you fly PSA and hit town, looking for a place to crash if the 
dorms aren't open yet, and stand in line for hours to get your IBM. 
punch class cards (or whatever). Uncle Fred graduated with a de.. 
gree in English in '52 and teaches high school back home. Either 
that or you drive in every day on the freeway and in place of the Old 
Quad there's a concrete slab patio with concrete benches. 

Even though some atmosphere has been lost, the new open. style 
campus has its advantages. Commando groups of students can't 
sneak up on the administration building as easily and the trees 
aren't covered with lichens from the shade and damp, which is a 
real hangup when you go to sit under a tree to read and find your, 
self leaning back on a green mess. Libraries are better, even if 
they do look like warehouses, and the school doesn't have to spend 
as much on lights tor the reading rooms because they didn't put in 
decent windows. 

The attitude has changed, too. After being urged to stick it out 
through high school, the idea of getting a diploma from college was 
a bit superfluous, unless you wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer or 
Uncle Fred was paying your way. During summer break you might 
work in the town grocery store, where all the customers knew you by 
name and called you "Our Scholar." The kids you went to school 
with called you "Egghead" behind your back and you could get a date 
with any girl in town because you were going to amount to something 

Today, you're urged not to drop out of college. Since you want to 
become a molecular physiologist specializing in applied curative 
treatments of disfunctional cellular membranes you have difficulty 
getting a summer job in your field. You" probably work in the town 
supermarket bagging bananas, and nobody knows you from Adam. 
The kids you went to school with went to a better college than you're 
going to and call you "Dum.Dum" behind your back and you may be 
able to get a date with a girl on campus (the ration is only $:1), but 
you're a good catch because the chances are 87 per cent that the bank 
financing your education will make sure you amount to something. 
You've got to, to pay back the loan. 

People's attitudes toward college students nave changed drama, 
tically. Back in the good old days the local paper put in your picture 
and ran a front page "hometown boy goes to college" story. The 
neighbors were all excited and your parents bragged to their friends. 
Wien you wore your State U. sweatshirt people came up to you and 
said "State U.! Why my second cousin's brother Fred went to State 

U. in M2!" 

Last December I took a flight from LA to Miami. Not too long after 
we left LAX the woman n&t to me turned to me and asked if I were 
in college (I was reading my invertebrate bio text). Right after I said 
yes she came out with "My, my, we MUST do something about our 
colleges, right?" "Sure," I blurted, unwilling to get in an involved 
argument. "By the way, what school are y^u^oing to? Are you going 
back there now?" "Yes lam," I replied, "the University of Havana." 
She deserved it, I thought later. 

Of course, there are plenty of changes ior the better. Back in 
those primeval times colleges were cloisters, and the problems of 
the world were only indirectly related to the stuffy prose of the text, 
book. Nowadays, college students are not only aware of world prob. 
lems, but they have their very OWN world problem to concern them. 

It's a nice feeling to have your own problem, although I can think 
of some people at Berkeley and Columbia who would just as soon 
forego the pleasure. 

Still, it's an exciting time to be a student. If the world can keep 
from blowing itself up, starving Itself, smearing itself over with oil 
and smog, and infecting itself with biological weapons, it will offer 
a lot of opportunities. Our day wil'r come soon If it comes at all, 
and the next question is wnat are you going to do about it? 

Education starts in the classroom but doesn't end there. It Just 
doesn't end. Besides. . . you only get as much out of college as you 
put in.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — It's the "Year of the Warriors" at 
California Lutheran College. And there may be a real battle in store 
for the Kingsmen, who were 9.1 last year and No. 9 in the national 

Coach Bob Shoup, District III and Area I National Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Coach of the Year in 1968, has a 
major rebuilding job this year as he must find replacements for 20 
graduated lettermen, including All-American Gary Loyd. But Shoup 
has a group of 22 strong sopho. »

mores, who posted a 7-0 fresh 
man record last year, on hand. If 
the first- year men come through, 
the Kingsmen will have an out. 
side chance of repeating their 
1968 district championship. 
Shoup's "guarded optimism" is 
based on the rapid development 
of a young squad. 

Offensively Cal Lutheran will 
be sound. The backfield is ex. 
oerienced, the receiver corps 
outstanding, and the offensive 
line seasoned, if not deep. 

The ground attack should be 
a strong point as All.Coast run- 
ning back Joe Stouch, who rushed 
for 883 yards and a 5.0 yards 
per.carry average last year, re. 
turns at left half. Senior Ron 
Schommer. injured last year, 
has the ability to make the big 
play and may even give Stouch a 
run for the money. Sophomore 
Dave Sandifer leads in the com. 
petition for the fullback slot va- 
cated by last year's workhorse 
Bruce Nelson. 

The passing game also has 

potential. Quarterback Al Jones, 

who led the team to five vie. 

tories in 1968, returns as field 

general. Jones hit 65 of 107 

passes for an outstanding .608 

completion average and 883 yards 

The return of Tom Turk, a fine 

passer who missed last season 

due to injury, should answer the 

,search for a back-up quarterback. 

Senior flankers Brian Jeter 

and Bill "Robbie" Robinson lead 

a fleet group of wide receivers. 

If Jeter can return to the form 

he showed as a sophomore when 

he earned all-dlstrict honors, the 

Kingsmen will have a real break. 

away threat. Robinson is a key 

performer as both a receiver and 

kicker. He led all scorers last 

year with a record-breaking 11 

field goals, 29points-after-touch- 

down and 5 touchdowns for a total 

of 92 points. Robinson's status is 

questionable at present due to a 

knee Injury. 

Senior Ted Masters has good 
speed and unusual blocking abi- 
lity for a split end. Tri-Captain 
Carl Clark, a rugged blocker and 
clutch receiver, gives CLC the 
ideal combination at tight end. 
The addition of newcomer John 
Bossard, who runs the 100 in 
9.9, rounds out what should be 
a fine passing attack. 
* Up front the Kingsmen have a 
veteran at every spot except cen. 
ter, but lack size and depth. So- 
phomore Gary McGinnis at 6-0, 
211 has been Impressive and will 
anchor the line at center. Senior 
Sohn Dillon, 6-0, 218 and junior 
Tim Van Buskirk, 5.9, 192 lead 
the guard corps which has been 
bolstered by the return of Viet- 
nam veteran Steve Pederson, who 
is the biggest man on the squad 
at 6-4, 240. Bruce Thomas, a 6-2 
230 senior and Bruce Carlson, 
a 6.0, 210 junior will handle the 
tackle slots. 

It is on defense that Shoup must 
rely heavily on his sophomores. 
As many as six first.year men 
may start, on the defensive unit. 
The line Is particularly so. 
phomore.laden. Jim Bauer, one 
of many outstanding youngsters 
at 5.9, 230 will hold the middle 
guard job. Sophomore Richard 
Kelley, 6-0, 190 and Don Boothe, 
5-11. 191, are the leading candi. 
dates at defensive end. Gary 
Branham, 6-3, 235, another so- 
phomore, has the edge at one 
tackle berth. Senior Glenn Al. 
ford, 6.0. 220 will provide the only 
real experience from his left 
tackle position. 

Lineba eking should be a defen- 
sive strength for the Kingsmen. 
Two of the team's tri-captains 
— Richard Andrade and Gary 
Echols — should provide the 
know-how to back up the untest. 
ed line. Andrade, 5-10, 180 is a 
hard-hitter who was the lead- 
ing tackier last year. Echols, 6.2 
185 intercepted 7 passes last year 
and is a leading contender for 
All.Dlstrict honors. Sophomore ' 
Pat Shanley, a 5-9, 190 hustler, 
has earned the other lineback- 
ing post. 

The deep secondary is quick 
but inexperienced. Aggressive 
sophomore Arnold Allen, 5-10, 
175, and Bob Wilkins. a 6.2, 
190 junior transfer from Colo, 
rado State University, have shown 
fine potential at halfback. Re- 
turning senior safety Chris El. 
kins, honorable mention All.Dis. 
trict last year, provides the ex. 
perience needed to prevent mis- 
takes here. 

If the sophomores come 
through, particularly on defense, 
the Year of the Warrior should 
be a good one at California Lu. 
theran College.

In the 1940' s, Germany and 
Italy were taken over by a wide, 
scale fascist movement. In 1969, 
the Freshman class was subject, 
ed to a similar degradation: Ini- 

Think for a moment how alike 
these two incidents are. The 
German people were subjected 
to constant humiliation and even 
execution. The Frosh received 
only idle threats of "Liquida- 
tion," but were humiliated to no 
end. The women sported macabre 
clashing outfits with a wide va- 
riety of footwear, all mismatch, 
ed. The men were smartly at. 
tired in inside-out shirts, pants 
rolled up at the cuff, clashing 
socks, and, after Thursday night, 
soggy beanies. All Frosh carried 
pillows or blankets, and were 
"asked" to put their thumbs in 
their mouths. 

The Italians were brainwashed 
by Musollini with frantic cries 
of "Dulce." The Sophomores de- 
manded devotion from the stolid 
Frosh, forcing them to sing songs 
such as "We Love You Sopho. 
mores" and "How Dumb We 
Are." The Frosh were also in- 
troduced to another unique form

Whatever a freshman expects 
out of college, whatever he ex- 
pects college to be; he is sure 
to find that it is a different world 
than he has ever known. The first 
week spent at CLC is one of ad. 
justment to this new world. It is 
adjustment to the food served 
in the cafeteria, to dormitory 
life, to new people and to the 
philosophy of college. 

It is a week of being homesick 
or a week so full of a new life 
that you don't have the time to be- 
come homesick. A week full of 
meetings where you listen to peo. 
pie say many things you've heard 
before, only in a new context. The 
week also includes registration, 
a day or two of spending hours de- 
ciding which courses to take and 
then having to work it out again. 
After registration is com. 
pleted, classes and Frosh Inida. 
tion begin. The tradition of Frosh 
Initiation is something that CLC 
is fortunate to have. Most Ameri. 
can institutions of higher educa- 
tion are too large and imperso- 
nal to provide such entertain, 
ment and enjoyment for fresh, 

The idea of initiation creates 
almost as many emotional hang, 
ups as initiation itself does. Dur. 
ing the days before initiation be. 
gins, the Frosh wonder about it 
and worry about it. This year, 
the worries were almost worse 
than initiation, at least for the ma- 
jority of the Frosh. 

Not that the Sophs didn't have 
many wonderful things planned 
and not that they didn't carry 
them through. It was just that the 
Sophs decided to be a little gentle 
because of some of the results 
of Frosh Initiation 1968. 

Getting up in the middle of the 
night and exercising is great not 
only for the body, but for the 
soul. Going without make-up save 
for red lipstick used incorrect, 
ly and dressing without regard 
for elegance doesn't really pro. 
duce bad feelings, if enough o. 
thers are Involved in the same 
foolishness. In fact, these things 
tend to produce good personal 
feelings, if they are viewed in the 
proper light. 

Attending the opening academic 
convocation dressed unusually 
was enjoyable. What was bad 
about convocation for some was

This year's Frosh initiation program started off with a "bang" 
from cap guns as "The Brotherhood" moved in on the Frosh. It be- 
gan after a short vesper service in the gym. Wednesday, Sept. 24, 
at 9:00 p.m. There the Frosh learned essential songs and the proce. 
dure of the traditional "Buttoning" under the direction of "Big L" 
(Adrian Lee, class president) and other members of "The Brother, 
hood." The fun didn't stop there. However, after a restful (?) night, 
the Frosh were awakened for a tour of the campus at 5:30 a.m.' 
Thursday. Exercises were done on the football field as well as a 
fashion show at the outdoor theater. President Olson also received 
his traditional "Good Morning" 
From there the Frosh went 
through a day of doing "odds 
and ends" for the Sophomores 
and upperclassmen. Thursday 
nieht at about 12:30 they were 

awakened again for more vigor- 

ous exercises and an 'infor- 
mal" meeting with Frosh men 
and women between Alpha and 
Beta Halls. In the gym Friday 

night, Sept. 26 at 8:30 Frosh 

received their due punishments 

for not obeying the wishes of 

"The Brotherhood." 

The Frosh finally got tc 

breathe easily after a short "de. 

beaning ceremony during half. 

time at last Saturday's football 

game with Redlands. There the 

Frosh were voted worthy of be- 
coming Freshmen and Kingsmen 

at CLC. 


So how was your first day of 
classes? Odds are it was pro- 
bably as bent out of shape as 
mine. Take note: 

The three classes I have with 
scheduled periods were all 
(amazingly enough) held at the 
scheduled time, but only one 
ended up in the scheduled room. 

That was an advanced English 
composition class held in Bio- 
logy lab. 

(Continued on page 5) 




As most of your upperclassmen 
know, the question of who to 
root for arises each year as the 
Sophs take over the Frosh. After 
watching Big L and the Boys 
take over the "Beanied Babies" 
this year, I decided immediately 
that this con game was going to 
go on unopposed. Not only did 
the Frosh not resist, they did 
not so much as even let a little 
obscenity fall from their sweet 
little lips, f personally was dis- 
appointed because I felt for sure 
that more than once, at least one 
feeble Soph was going to "eat his 
lunch." But no| 

I was convinced that Big L with 
the help of "Junky" Geoff and 
Oakland would surelydemoralize 
the Frosh class. Even the dresses 
of the Frosh girls suddenly got 
longer; I guess they knew that 
sooner or later they'd all be but- 
toning for Big L. 

Anyway the next day passed, 
and the only "faire de re- 
sistance" made was by a girl 
who was asked to button by my 
roommate. My roommate went so 
far as to say please, and the only 
response he got was to "Shove. . 

This made me feel better — the 
Frosh had finally banned together 
to resist the debonnaire Big L 
and his squirt gun goons. But 
then came the midnight raid. The 
Frosh men all smelled like they 
had been to a barber shop. 

Faith in the Frosh class was re. 
stored to me, however, when af. 
ter a brief swim in the Olympic, 
size lawn between Alpha and Beta, 
a weary Frosh calmly maintained 
that his "Timex keeps on 





Anyone coming into the Library recognizes immediately that things 
are not as they have been. The furniture and book stacks in the center 
room have been rearranged to provide a better flow of traffic, to in- 
crease the amount of space behind the circulation desk, and to im. 
prove the study space in the room by getting the carrels away from the 
circulation desk. 

Two other changes will have a greater effect upon everyone using 
the Library. You are award that new I.D. cards have been issued to 

everyone on campus and that this card has embossed on it the name 

of the person to whom it is issued. The Librarv is now using an 

electric book charging machine 

and it is necessary that the 

borrower have this embossed 

identification card in order to 

check out a book. The clerk at 

the circulation desk must place 

the I.D. card, with the card from 

the pocket in the back of the book, 

on the machine; the name of the 

borrower and the due date will 

then be printed on the book card. 

This card is retained by the Li- 

brary as a record of thetransac- 

tion and a card giving the date the 

book is due will be inserted into 

the pocket in the back of the book. 

The machine will also be used 

for checking out reserve books. 
The Library staff is presently 

in the process of removing some 

of the books from the open shelves 

to place them in a storage area. 

If the collection is to continue 

to grow it is necessary to place 

some of the less frequently used 

volumes in storage in order to 

provide shelf space for new ma- 

terial. The Library now has al. 

most 58.000 volumes and expects 

to have well over sixty thousand 

before the end of this academic 


Books placed in storage will 

be available for use but it will 

be necessary to place a request 

for them at the circulation desk. 

Cards in the author catalog will 

be annotated to indicate which 

books have been placed in stor- 

age. For the time being books 

will be stacked along some of the 

walls and in some of the car. 

rels. these are on their way 
to storage. This will incon-

please bear with us, we will 
complete the move just as soon 
as possible.

All comers — skiers, non-skiers, beginners, novices, snow bun- 
nies, and snow makers — are all invited to the first Big Meeting of 
the Schneedork Ski Club. The meeting is scheduled for this Thurs. 
day evening, October 2, in K-l at 8 p.m. After a short introduction 
of the coming events and trips we will be sponsoring throughout the 
coming year, we will be presented two exciting Warren Miller 
films — "Skiing Is For Fun" and "The Technique of Short Skis." 
Refreshments will be provided — Free — and you are encouraged 
to bring a friend. 

This year on Sunday evening, November 23, the Schneedork Ski 
Club will proudly present Warren Miller's all new, ninety minute 
color ski movie, "THIS IS SKIING" in the Gymnasium at C.L.C. 
The film is all new for 1970 and will have been shown only once in 
Southern California previous to our performance. "THIS IS SKIING" 
brings to the screen a 90-minute ski view of powder snow and sun. 
shine — blizzards and national championship racers — France and 
Alaska and music — and fun mostly. 

Through Warren's well traveled camera and diverse interest, he 
has produced over one hundred movies and his published four books. 
"THIS IS SKIING." Warren's latest film, captures all the unusual 
and creative talents that makes this film one to be remembered for 
years to come. Like the producer, this ski adventure film is well 
traveled; featuring skiing in California, Utah, Colorado, Vermont, 
Idaho. France, and Alaska. 

Television and feature film experience add to the scope and quali- 
ty of Warren's films. Warren Miller Productions has created sever- 
al shows for network television, the latest being the very successful 
Jean-Claude Killy television series of CBS. 

To learn more about this great event and other activities during 
the '69-'70 Ski Season, be sure to attend our opening meeting on 
Thursday, October 2, at 8 p.m. in K-l. We'll be looking forward to 
making your acquaintance! 

THIS IS SKIINC — This side of skiing is reserved for instructors like 
this one at Mammoth Mountain. But there are other sides to skiing 
that anyone can enjoy. The many sides of skiing featured in Warren 
Miller's all new. ninety minute color ski movie, "THIS IS SKIING," 
will be presented by the Schneedork Ski Club on Sunday evening, No- 
vember 23 in the Gym.

On August 26. 1920, the United States Congress raUfied the 19th 
Amendment which states that "the right of the citizens of the United 
States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States 
or by any state on account of sex." That was the beginning of the 
recognition of the equality of the sexes. Unfortunately, extending the 
franchise to the female citizens of the United States did not necessa. 
rily extend to her the basic rights and freedoms inherent in the Bill 
of Rights and the United States Constitution. The public, if not the 
government, still considered the woman's place to be in the home, 
which meant that many occupations were (are) closed to her. 

The fight for women's rights has progressed slowly since 1920. 

Women have gradually been granted rights in the United States which 

were inherently theirs. With the Civil Riehts Acts and the Equal 

Employment Commission, the United States government finally ac. 

knowledged the fact that women were being discriminated against 

and that some safeguards were needed to protect these rights. 

Some freshmen women at Oneonta State College In New York have 
Initiated a constitutional challenge of women's hours. They have 
based their argument on the fact that the men students have no hours. 
It is their belief, and mine, that women's curfews are based on 
sexual discrimination and therefore unconstitutional. 

Colleges and institutions of higher education, such as ours, which 
continue to enforce discriminatory rules and laws, such as wo. 
men's hours, sign-in and slgn.out. and bedchecks are perpetuating this 
antiquated and illegal system of denying a woman her basic rights. 
By having and enforcing these rules, they are overprotecting women 
and encouraging them to be subservient to men, which in turn 
discourages them from competing with men in their chosen voca. 

The greatest waste of (wo)man.power In the United States is the 
female college graduates who feel they cannot be a successful 
mother and wife while at the same time having a career. These 
women cannot see any relationship between the creativity of mother, 
hood and the creativity of a challenging career. The American 
colleges and Universities are churning out generation after genera, 
tion of lazy women who only attend these institutions to "catch" a good 
husband who will support them in the manner to which they wish to 
become accustomed for the rest of their lives. The roots of this 
kind ofaha'ttitudelieiji the past, present, and possibly future infringe- 
ment upon women's rights.' This is why today's woman must begin 
to think and analyse exactly what she wants her life to be. If you as 
a woman wish your life to be daytime soap operas and bridge lunch- 
eons, then keep thoughts of rights and freedoms out of your mind. 
But if you want a challenging career where you can explore new areas 
of creativity, demand those rights which are yours.

O.R.G.Y. creators, Roger Dokken and Tim Pinkney look over some 
hot prospects for their computerized dating center. 

O.R.G.Y. 'S 


School has opened and once again the cycle begins anew: new 
classes, new professors and most important, new girls on campus. 

This year, like last year, the Freshman Women Identification 
Corps more commonly known as O.R.G.Y. (the Organization of Re- 
g'stering Girls for You) has acquired valuable information regard, 
ing our new freshmen "birds." 

Greater care was taken this year in our attempt to register 100 
per cent of our lovely doves. We, the Governors ot O.R.G.Y. 
felt this year's swans would not swallow last year's premise of 
a computer dance and thus we were forced to resort to an ambigious 
document entitled "The Social Equation;" we are pleased to report 
that we were so successful that only a few of our lovebirds escaped 
our annual snare. 

C.L.C. roosters really have a lot to crow about when they look 
around the campus cage, for we are proud to release the average 
wingspan of our pigeons as 35.9 — 24.5 — 35.5 (which is a V2" 
increase from our blossomed beauties of last year. 

Some additional general information that we can release at this 
time is that most of this year's flock has migrated from within our 
own state to this — the church's protected reserve. When further 
plucking into our AVES NEORNITHES we discover that their favorite 
color is sky blue, their favorite flower to light on Is 2 dsisy and their 
favorite bird ranged from a delicate redwinged hummingbird to a 
big raunchy buzzard. 

We are sorry but that is all the general information we can re.

After two days of those 7:40 
classes, a fantastic football 
game, and Sunday dinner In the 
CLC cafeteria, another year at 
CLC is underway. It's easy to 
forget all those issues that con. 
cerned so many of us last spring 
— discussions about the pass, 
fail system, student body elec 
tions, a falling senate, and, most 
vocal of all the arguments, the is- 
sue of women's rights and hours. 
Now that classes have started 
those extra-curricular activities 
are once again arousing atten. 
tion. Candy Maitland organized 
a dorm meeting for Sept. 29 to 
talk about her favorite topic, wo. 
men's hours. Ski club has their 
first meeting this week, as well 
as a few of the smaller clubs. 
Of course, a few of the smaller 
club CLC's Friday Afternoon 
Club, better known as the FAC, 
beat all student organizations 
with their first get.together last 
Friday. So, with so much to do, 
let's watch closely and really 
get something done this year in.

ed and de. Pioneered, or to be 
more specific, debeanied, the 
freshman class of CLC and other 
new students gathered in the gym 
Sunday evening, September 28, 
for the President's Reception. 

With the girls in their long, 
flowing gowns or short, wispy 
mini's and the guy's In suits, they 
proceeded down the receiving 
line. Dr. and Mrs. Edmund, and 
Pastor and Mrs. Swanson, joined 
President and Mrs. Olson in 
meeting and welcoming the new 
students. Several ASB leaders 
as well as a number of faculty 
members and their spouses cir. 
culated throughout the crowd. 
Dean Gangsei and his wife were 
also on hand to lend their friend, 
ly hospitality to the affair. 

Refreshments were served by 
the SPURS. (Sophomore Women's 
Honorary Society). Entertain, 
ment was proved byCLC's string 
Quartet, which included, Norma 
Van Dalsem, string bass; Bonnie 
Moore, piano; Cheryl Raught, 
viola; and Jeannle Tellez, violin. 

— There will be changes at Cali- 
fornia Luthsrsn College this fail, 
with many of the changes invoiv. 
ing new strength and development 
for us. Each September we have 
the happy experience of seeing 
more strength and maturity, with 
this year being especially no- 
ticeable. For example: 

The Department of Sociology 
has been strengthened consider, 
ably with two new professors 
added to this faculty. Dr. Mary 
Margaret Thomes and Mr. James 

The California Lutheran Intern 
Program (CLIP) has contined to 
grow and win enthusiastic praise 
from public school adminlstra- 
tors. In addition to its effective, 
ness in Ventura County there is 
now an extension functioning at 

A new psychology laboratory 
has been built and installed. 

The need for added classrooms 
has been very great. The solu. 
tion has been to respond gladly 
to the offer of Holy Trinity Lu. 
theran Church (LCA) and rent 
their facilities for added class, 
room space, which has allowed 
other space to be taken for labor, 
atory use. 

In spite of many obstacles the 
College is moving a large barn to 
the campus to be renovated for 
use as a "coffee house" type 
facility providing a recreation 
center for students to supple, 
ment the College Union. The 
building has been donated by 
Janss Corporation. The Com. 
munlty Leaders Club is assist. 
ing in renovation and contracting 
needs. It should be ready for use 
early in the school year. 

During the spring and summer 
members of the faculty and staff 
have been awarded their Doc 
torates. These include: Dr. Lyle 
Gangsei, Dr. Lyle Murley, Dr. 
Curtis Nelson. As a result, with, 
in our full-dme faculty, we have 
45 percent of doctorates.

12. WHEREAS: Student leadership now questions whether a "com. 
munity" can exist 13. when the student position in such is basically 
inferior and restricted; and 

14. WHEREAS: A cohesive statement on student rights, objectives 
and role In the 15. institution would appear to be the only effective res.

17. THEREFORE. BE IT RESOLVED: That the Senate of the aIso! 
ciated Student Body 18. adopt the Statement of Student Rights, Needs 
and Desires as a position consistent 19. with the new direction in 
student government at CLC. 


We, the students of California Lutheran College, do hereby deny 
the validity of the existent double standard imposed on students and 
declare ourselves separate from, and equal to the faculty and adminis. 
tration in determining the affairs of this institution. We assert our in- 
herent right as students and as responsible individuals to denounce 
unilateral actions and paternalistic attitudes. 

Whereas, this institution exists as an educational service, we as 
students recognize the origin of our rights In the concept that this 
service must be rendered consistent with student needs and desires. 
Furthermore, we assert the requirement for autonomous student 
definition of student needs and desires. We seriously question 
whether at California Lutheran College we can be or should be a 
community of common purpose, direction or spirit. We affirm that, 
due to the essentially distinct and differing nature of student needs 
and desires, there may not necessarily be any compatibility between 
student and administrative objectives. The disparity between short 
term and long term goals has contributed to an abysmal gap between 
student and administrative planning. We reject the current verbiage 
re 5J r J in g C.L.C. goals as being vague and meaningless to students. 

With its priorities being contemporary and activist in orientation, 
student government is tc be considered the only viable voice of the 
students. Student government refuses to be dispensed with. Irs 
determination is to achieve satisfaction for student needs and desires. 
Its right to be recognized in serious negotiation. 



As faras the AMS activities are 
concerned, there will be a limited 
number this first quarter. An 
oversight from last year leave 
the AMS pocketbook short. We 
only have one major responsibi- 
lity this first quarter and that Is 
the decorating of the men's dorm 
at homecoming. Besides this we 
only have two or three dates to 
work with as this first quarter 
was quite solidly booked to begin 

We hope to have a good pro-

— The newspapers and 
periodicals, as well as special 
studies of private higher educa. 
tion, tell the story of the per. 
plexities of private colleges in 
meeting their financial obli- 
gations of the moment and plan, 
ning for the future. CLC shares 
in this perplexity, emphasized 
by the fact that is is only begin, 
ning its ninth year of academic 

I wish you could share with 
me the knowledge of how earnest, 
ly and vigorously people are 
working at the strengthening of 
the College in its financial life. 
This is true of a splendid Board 
of Regents, it is true of the De. 
velopment staff and others who 
work with them. It is also true of 
volunteer men and women among 
the Fellows, the parents, the 
alumni and other kriends. All of 

these people need others to join 
them in bringing CLC to strength 
financially. The 1969-70 year pro. 
mises to be our best one but it 
will not be so unless we gain the 
enthusiastic participation of all 
who make up the CLC communi. 
ty in its largest sense. 

The Regents are giving earn, 
est attention to the North Cam- 
pus plans as they face the pres- 
sures of space and enrollment in 
the present facilities. We are at 
a critical point, a kind of water, 
shed period, as we test the pos- 
sibility of going to the north. 
Be sure that all of us involved 
are spending ourselves, with our 
time and personal resources, to 
break loose and take the next 
major step in the development 
of CLC.

Anthropology student majors, 
seeking an upper level elective, 
and special students still mayen- 
roll in a course in field archaeo- 
logy at California Lutheran Col- 
lege, according to Dr. Thomas 
J. Maxwell, Sociology-Anthropo- 
logy Department chairman. 
There will be up to 15 enroll- 

Not listed at CLC pre-regis. 
tration, the class which will meet 
on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 
noon, and at arranged laboratory 
hours beginning on Sept. 27, pro. 
poses to excavate during the 
Fall session at a Chumash In- 
dian site located near the Col- 
lege campus. 

As a result of field archaeo- 
logical research conducted last 
summer by Dr. Maxwell, stu- 
dents unearthed new artifacts 
and historical data relating to 
the Chumash Indian culture of 
Western California. Continuing 
search by students for clues 
leading to reconstruction of early 
Indian inhabitation of the Conejo 
Valley (rabbit valley) led to dis- 
coveries of over 700 artifacts in 
a rock shelter near the CLC 
campus last year. Interpretation 
of the data led to interesting con- 
clusions about the former dwel- 
lers of the Thousand Oaks site. 

A 1965 investigation by the An- 
thropology Department of the 
University of California indica- 
ted that Chumash tribes of the 
Conejo Valley were mainly in- 
land inhabitants, dating from 1000 
A.D. to as late as 1300 A.D. 

Conclusions based upon speci- 
fic occurrences of glass and oli- 
vella beads, and discovery of de- 
sert side-notched projectiles, 
concur with the chronological 
sequence established for Chu- 
mash sites through previous stu- 

Dr. Maxwell's student group 
findings have shown the surpris. 
lug occurrence of concave based 
desert projectile points below 
convex points and the absence of 
side-notched points, crude fish 
hooks, many types of shells and 
clam shell ornaments as well as 
pestles. The findings indicate a 
seasonal coastal campsite of the 
Chumash, probably dating around 
1400-1600 A.D. 

"Students with interest in 
man's past, with an affinity for 
sun, soil, and study combined, 
will have the possibility of some 
field trips in connection with the 
famed nearby Stagecoach Inn at 
Newbury Park, and its present 
project of developing a museum 
and accomplishing a complete 
survey of the archaeology of the 
Conejo Valley," Dr. Maxwell 
pointed out. 

This is a course that can be 
taken for the fun of it and com. 
bines practice with theory, ac- 
cording to Dr. Maxwell. "Here 
is an opportunity to make a con- 
tribution to the body of data 
already gathered locally on the 
Chumash, while learning sound 
principles of archaeology," Dr. 
Maxwell said.

1969 BULLETIN # 1 



October 2, 1969 

On September 30, 11:00 A.M. the resigna- 
tion of Bill Bowers as editor of the 
Mountclef ECHO became effective. The 
reasons given were "an exceptionally heavy 
course load and a lack of organized co- 
operation." At that time the ECHO came 
under direct control of the Student 
Publications Commission. 

As a result of this matter the Student 
Publication Commission met at 9:30, 
October 1, to consider the matter. At that 
time Doug Hurley was appointed by the 
Commission to take over any and all duties 
necessary and expected of the editor of 
the Mountclef ECHO, until such a time 
as an editor may be selected. 

It was further decided by the Commission 
to impliment a formal selection process 
in the matter of a new editor. 

This meaning that the Student Publications 
Commission is now accepting applications 
for the position of editor of the 
Mountclef ECHO. Any persons interested in 
applying should contact Chris Walker Ext. 
313 or P.O. Box 2547 as soon as possible 
for a formal application and further 
details. Deadline for these applica- 
tions is Tuesday night 12:00 midnight 
October 7, 1969. 

The Student Publications Commission is the 
Governing Body of Publication on this 
campus and feels that it has a respon- 
sibility to keep the Student, Faculty, 
and Administration informed concerning 
any changes which might possibly affect 
the welfare of the school

that the Sophs began to know 
more about one than just that 
one was a Frosh. The group 
picture for the Frosh with ho- 
nors at entrance proved to be 
fun and not terribly important. 

Thursday night, dinner was 
enjoyable in two ways. The first 
was watching others do ridicu. 
lous things and the second was 
personal involvement in the ri- 
diculous. It was also great to miss 
eating dinner because by the time 
one was ready to eat, the Frosh 
had decided to run down to the 

Friday night was also enjoy, 
able. Of course, there were those 
who suffered great Indignities 
when they were called up during 
Kangaroo Court. But most of it 
was done in the spirit of fun and 
was taken that way. 

Saturday, it was fun to get up 
and paint the CLC and for some 
it was great to be able to sleep 
in. Then, after being accepted 
as fres*hmen and Kingsmen, it 
was wonderful to beat Redlands. 

This first week at CLC has 
produced the beginnings of a 
unity between this new world 
and the freshmen. 

(Continued from page 2) 


This class has a new prof 
(as yet untested by the CLC 
student) and too, too many stu- 
dents for a comp. class. She said 
we'd write a lot. We will — our 
first assignment was held then 
and there. 

My second class was Ameri- 
can History 201 — supposed to 
be held in K.l. It wasn't. Some- 
one said "no, it's been switch- 
ed to F-l!" F-l was having 
Spanish. I think we ended up in 

AmHist was another new prof._ 
and too many students for a safe 
and sane discussion group. (So 
what else is new. . .?) 

Class 3: an upper division po. 
litical science. The burning ques. 
tion was: "will Dr. Tseng stay 
in the assigned room?" True 
to form, we emigrated to his of- 
fice halfway through the period. 
("Too hot in here. My office 
has an air conditioner! ") 

Dr. Tseng is not new and 
wouldn't you know the class has 
too few students? No way to skip 
safely. No way.

of showing their respect: The 
Button. This salute is really 
quite complex, and a good Button 
is a true art form, but most learn, 
ed it very quickly. 

Residents of Germany during 
the 40' s could expect to be awa- 
kened at any hour of the night. 
The Frosh males V*SIc up bright 
and early Friday morning (1:00 
a.m.). not, however, by their 
own choice. They ran, sat, stood, 
.crawled, and swam, being bath- 
ed always in a mixture of shaving 
cream, water, and anything else 
the Sophomores could find. They 
were then released at the far end 
of the campus, to walk to the 
dorms in freezing fog and drip- 
ping clothes. This activity was 
all observed by the splendidly 
prepared Frosh women, decked 
out in their best bathrobes and 
lipstick, expertly applied by the 
Sophomore women. 

Friday night, the Sophomore's 
held a mock trial for all the 
trouble-makers. Of course there 
were really no trials — just 
sentences. Different Frosh had 
to drink Milk of Magnesia, get 
covered with mud, take a "bath" 
or cool off on a block of ice. 
There was the usual minor up- 
rising, common to all fascist 
movements, but it was quickly 
snubbed by the Gestapo-like So. 
phomores filling the aisles. 

Saturday brought the climax. 
During half-time of the victorious 
game against Redlands, the Frosh 
did one, or two, final Buttons, 
and removed their beanies to 
become Freshmen. 

Was anyone angry? Not really. 
A few incidents were unfortunate 
errors on the part of both the 
Freshmen and the Sophomores, 
but the entire effect was worth- 
while. If you didn't participate, 
well, you missed it| And what 
are the Freshmen who went 
through it all saying now? 

"Man, is it going to be good 
next year!"

The Stranger With Guitar 

Who is the stranger walking 

up the road? Dressed in motley and 

floppy hat, guitar 

slung on his back? 

He carries a battered bedroll 
in the crook of his arm; his worn-out 
sandals kick up a cloud of dust that 
trails behind him. 

His face, shadowed by the 
sun, cannot be read. Only 
traces of a smile are 
hinted at. 

— He's comming, coming, closer 
— and he's gone, a distant 
figure down the road, guitar 
slung on his back. . . .

— The Board of Regents lives with 
the simple fact that the College 
must have enough Income from 
students and gifts and grants 
to balance the expenditures ne- 
cessary to operate. It must at- 
tempt in light of past experience 
to measure the trends in costs, 
and establish a reasonable in- 
come plan for at least the year 

The Regents, at a recent meet, 
ing, established the Comprehen- 
sive Fee for resident students 
for the 1970-71 school year at 
$2,775 which includes tuition, 
general fees, board and room. 
The Comprehensive Fee for non- 
resident students will be $1785 for 
the same period. The comparable 
fees for the current year are 
$2,520 and $1,610. 

To illustrate the realism of the 
problem faced by the Regents, 
compensation paid faculty and 
other employees must be increas. 
ed by at least 5 per cent per 
annum just to maintain the same 
net purchasing power of the em- 
ployee; and some additional in- 
crease for merit is imperative 
to attract and hold persons who 
are well qualified. 

Thus, a total of 6 per cent is 
projected to cover additional sa- 
lary expenses, resulting in a total 
additional expense of approxi. 
mately $100,000; and other gener. 
al operating expenses, substan- 
tially because of inflationary cost 
increases, will result in mini, 
mum additional expenses next 
year of roughly $125,000. Other 
additional expenses, such as in- 
terest payable, will increase ex. 
penses still further. 

To cope with all these expense 
demands the Board was aware 
that the tuition increases, in. 
eluding the comprehensive fee ol 
$2,775, would produce with the 
same number of students, onlyi 
$118,500 of the essential addition, 
al revenues. However, the deci- 
sion to increase the cost to the 
students was made under the as. 
sumption that the income from 
gifts and grants would need to be 
increased in a proportionate way, 
so as to retain a position where 
the student pays from 65 per cent 
to 70 per cent of the educational 
cost. Careful attention continues 
to be given to increasing scholar, 
ship and financial aid to the ful. 
lest possible extent. 

Friends of youth and of the 
higher education program of the 
church can look to their share In 
1970-71 by bolstering the income 
from gifts, grants, and scholar, 
ships. We do not see this to be 
a burden but as identifying an 
opportunity to have a firm share 
in a cause that is fully worth the 
best we can do.

California Lutheran College Football Coach Robert F. Shoup 
has been named Acting Director of Athletics by Dr. Raymond M. 
Olson. CLC President. 

Shoup succeeds John R. Siemens who served as Athletic Director 
from 1963 until his death by heart attack on August 31, 1969. 

The College President, in making the announcement, said, "Mr. 
Shoup has earned the respect of his associates at the College as a 
talented coach and an able teacher. We are confident that he can add 
this administrative responsibility as well." 

The versatile coach, who was National Association of Intercol- 
legiate Athletics District III 

Coach-of-the-Year last year, 
said. "I am pleased at the op. 
portunity to direct my energies 
to the total scope of the athle- 
tic program at CLC. My efforts 
will be to have a balanced pro- 
gram of excellence within all 
aspects of the athletic scene." 

Since starting football at CLC 
in 1962. Shoup has posted an 
impressive seven-year won-loss 
record of 46-18. His first three 
•-ears, the Kingsmen improved 
steadily, finishing with 3-4, 5-4, 
and 6-4 records. 

In 1965 the youthful coach's 
efforts bore fruit as Cal Lu- 
theran broke into the NAIA rank, 
ings with an 8.1 record. In 1966 
it was 8.2. and in 1967. 7-2. 
Last year CLC won 9 and lost 
1, and was recognized as the 
number 9 team in the country. 
The Kingsmen now have a 9 
game winning streak, including 
last week's 26-0 shutout over 
the University of Nevada. 

Shoup's success in football 
led to a term as president of the 
District III Football Coaches and 
his present position on a special 
NAIA committee to study nation, 
al play-offs. He is also involved 
in the academic and administra- 
tive realm of college life. At 
CLC he served as an Assistant 
Professor in Physical Education 
and Professional Studies, and 
Associate Director of Develop- 
• ment in charge of the College's 
parents and concert tour pro- 
grams. He received a Master's 
Degree from U.S.C. in 1961, and 
was the recipient of a grant by 
the American Lutheran Church 
Board of College Education for 
further graduate study. 

The 37.year.old coach first 
showed signs of his ability at 
Muir High School and John Muir 
College in Pasadena, where he 
was a four-year letterman in 
high school and student body 
president in college. Moving on 
to the University of California 
Santa Barbara, Shoup became a 
starter in both football and base, 
ball. In 1952 he led the Gauchos 
in both passing and total offense 
and in 1954 was the top hitter 
on the baseball squad. 

After a year of coaching at 
Santa Barbara High, he went 
on to build a football program 
at North High School in Tor. 
. ranee. Coming into a situation 
somewhat the same as the one 
he would encounter at Cal Lu- 
theran, Shoup soon developed his 
squad into a South Bay power, 
house. For his efforts he was 
twice named Coach of the Year. 

In all, he coached six cham- 
pionship teams in three differ, 
ent sports at Torrance. His va- 
ried experience proved valuable 
at Cal Lutheran, as he started 
the tennis program, coached 
baseball, and helped establish 
the Dallas Cowboys' training 

Shoup presently resides In 
Thousand Oaks with his wife 

Helen and their three children: 
Ricky 12, Gregory 7, and Heidi 
4. He is an active member of 
both religious and community 
organizations. At the Ascension 
Lutheran Church, he has been 
a church council and choir mem. 
ber and Bible teacher. Last year 
he received special recognition 
from the Thousand Oaks Cham, 
ber of Commerce for bringing 
national recognition to the Co. 
nejo Valley.

As has been clearly evidenced at the Forest Home Retreat, 
Las Vegas Conference and now, most recently, in the Senate of the 
Associated Student Body, this can be a pivitol year in student affairs 
at Cal Lutheran. I believe it essential that we discuss and act upon 
the issues involving new directions in student thought and student 
action. As we look past ourselves, searching fok relevance in the 
educational experience, it seems inescapable that the process will 
leave us sensitive to issues beyond the confines of CLC. We are 
beginning to sense that our needs are inherent, not unique, but shared 
by students nationwide. It is this new awareness that reveals mas- 
sive shortcomings in student government at CLC. I maintain that 
student government, especially the Senate, has failed in past years 
on two significant counts. First, it has lacked direction operating 
without foresight or intent. It has responded to Issues and not ini- 
tiated programs. When in the past no issue arose to respond to, gov- 
ernment has died. Government did not know where It was going and 
barely where it had been. 

The second major fault of student government has been undeniable 
and inexcusable. It has not been responsive to student needs and 
desires. Last year when the issues involving the proposed course 
In the New Left and women's hours developed, neither the Senate 
nor any other branch of student government was prepared. Why? 
Because no one In student government had bothered to explore 
the very Issues that touch the student most deeply, stimulate his 
imagination, but most importantly, are the obligation of any viable 
student government to explore. We must become aware that in the 
current context, the purpose of student government has been right- 
fully changed from one concerned with and restricted to the realm 
of on-campus social functions to an organization taking an active 
part in evaluation and confrontation of issues and problems perti- 
nent to our society and lives. It can be no longer make believe. 
The issues are real and if we are to lay claim to relevance, we 
must confront, not avoid them. The Senate, as well as all levels 
of student government, must take up the initiative and responsibility 
for exploring such subjects as the elimination of social restric 
tions, campus injustice, student power, academic innovation, etc. 
If we do not devel op objectives for student government that are In

"The type of non-violent action which the moratorium asserts 
is not only highly commendable but also sorely needed" — Senator 
Mark O. Hatfield. 

On September 26th, I was at St. Olaf In Minnesota meeting with 
the Student Body Presidents of the other American Lutheran 
Church sponsored Colleges. One of the items we discussed was our 
role in the Viet Nam Moratorium. The following resolution was 
passed unanimously. 

WHEREAS, WE as student leaders of Christian institutions of 
higher learning feel a definite need to express our moral concern 
for the conflict in Viet Nam; and 

WHEREAS, WE feel a need to support the actions of those Ameri- 
can citizens who are seeking an end to the war in Viet Nam; and 

WHEREAS, WE believe the Viet Nam Moratorium Committee 
is a viable and effective means for expressing this concern; there- 

BE IT RESOLVED THAT WE, the student body presidents repre- 
sentatives of the American Lutheran Church colleges and univer- 
sities, in convention assembled, do lend our full support and en- 
couragement to the churches and institutions of learning which in 
cooperation with the Viet Nam Moratorium Committee do mark 
October 15, 1969, as the first of a series of days for the expression 
of the desire of the American people for peace; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT WE urge churches and edu- 
cational institutions throughout the nation to join with us in this con. 
tlnuing endeavor. 

Mr. Haley is the author of the 
renowned "Autobiography of Mal- 
colm X", which can be purchas- 
ed in paperback In the college 
bookstore or checked out of the 
library. In preparation for Mr. 

Haley's appearance, I would sug- 
gest that students and faculty try 
to read the autoblobraphy. It is 
a breathtaking account of the lit- 
tle understood Malcom X, a man 
whose effect on blacks and whites 
is still increasing.

While CLC endures its O.R. 
G.Y.'S Ornithology, San Fran- 
Cisco State suffers its militant 
blackbirds. A College Press 
Service release informs us that 
the campus blackbirds of San 
Francisco State are apparently 
intoxicating themselves on a ber- 
ry that grows on campus during 
the spring and summer months. 

According to the campus orni- 
thologist, Paul Kangas, the birds 
only attack the backs of heads. 
On this theory, he asserts that 
"they will not attack if you look 
them in the eye." 

As Ol' Hickory would have 
said — "They don't fire when 
they see the whites of your eys." 

that affect no one but ourselves while ignoring legitimate student 
needs, then I maintain that those who claim student government 
is meaningless and unjustified are completely correct. 

When it is asked what direction the Senate is to take this year 
the answer is partly founded in the recognition that the past has been 
a disaster. With such past experience firmly in mind, the Senate 
has already moved toward relevance. It has expressed student 
opinion in its Statement of Student Purpose, acted on student needs 
in voting for a food strike on October 8th and voiced student concern 
for peace in approving observance of the October 15th Vietnam 
Moratorium. The key word is "student." For six years student 
government has not really thought in terms of "student" needs 
and desires. Certainly, if the ASB has been ineffectual, its failure 
has been in not assuming such a positive role. For too many years 
our structure has been apart from the student body, not intimately 
a part of it. The problems previously mentioned have arisen 
from nothing more than a confusion of our identity and a mlslnter- 
pretatlon of what it means to be a "student." 

When I speak of goals, I do not use the word in the same con- 
text that we have heard it from the administration for years. As 
the Statement of Student Purpose clearly asserts, student goals are 
not CLC goals. Except in the most broad and meaningless general, 
ization, our goals are never the same. Student needs and desires 
are essentially short term as contrasted to the "goals" of the 
institution and administration which are long term spanning many 
years. We may voice objectives which sound the same, but such ut- 
terances are misleading. The manner in which a student defines the 
goal of academic freedom is different than that of an administrator. 
Definitions determine the meaning of the goals and, thus, we simply 
do not agree. This awareness has finally allowed student govern, 
ment to free itself. It has ceased to think of Itself as part of the in- 
stitution. It is now free to define its own identity, propose its own 
directions and respond to the needs of students as a "student" 
orientated organization. This has been a significant reversal of 
philosophy and the Statement of Student Purpose expresses it well. 

It is with the same understanding that we have come to reject 
community exists, but we can no longer conceive of one with com- 
mon insights and tasks. Furthermore, there can be no community 
wnen the student position in such is restricted and when mutual 
respect is not an accepted axiom. The community recognized by 
student government is similar to relationship between labor and 
management in the business world. Both are dependent upon one 
another, but enter Into negotiation with separate interests. At CLC 
there is an outer circle we call community, but within there are 
diverse groups (i.e. students, faculty and administration). The stu- 
dent objective In such a community is to achieve a level of equality 
and authority commensurate with the rights of students. 

This is not a pessimistic philosophy for student government, but 
rather a statement of hope. At Las Vegas I called for this new out- 
look because I could not conceive of a viable student government 
without it. Our objective now must be to apply the definitions we 
have uncovered. We have declared ourselves separate and equal, 
we must now determine what that means In terms of specific pro- 
grams. We must interpret our rights as they relate to the issues 
that confront us.

Associated Student Body 


Senate action: Passed unanimously 

Senate Resolution #1 

AUTHOR: Senator Johnson 

TO PROVIDE FOR: An understanding of student government: Its 

responsibilities to students and role In the institution. 

WHEREAS: In past years student government has lacked self- 
understanding and conviction of purpose; and 

WHEREAS: Past failure to assert its identity and delineate its 
direction, has allowed other factions (i.e. faculty and administration) 
to often unilaterally define student needs and desires in determining 
policy and curriculum without challenge; and 

WHEREAS: Considerable administrative dialogue has been expended 
on the terms "CLC goals" and "CLC community;" and 

WHEREAS: Student leadership now questions whether common 
"goals" can be shared when student definitions of such are essen. 
tially different and when the priorities of student needs and desires 
are short term rather than long; and 

WHEREAS: Student leadership now questions whether a "com- 
munity" can exist when the student position in such is basically in. 
ferior and restricted; and 

WHEREAS: A cohesive statement on student rights, objectives 
and role in the Institution would appear to be the only effective res. 
ponse to the previously mentioned administrative dialogue; 

sociated Student Body adopt the Statement of Student Purpose as a 
position consistent with the new direction in student government in

TO PROVIDE FOR: A day dedicated to peace in Viet Nam 

WHEREAS: We as student leaders of a Christian Institution of 
higher learning feel a definite need to express our moral concern 
for the conflict in Viet Nam; and 

WHEREAS: We feel a need to support the actions of those Ameri. 
can citizens who are seeking an end to the war in Viet Nam; and 

WHEREAS: We believe the Viet Nam Moratorium Committee is 
a viable and effective means for expressing this concern; 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That we the student body of 
California Lutheran College, do lend our full support and encourage, 
ment to the churches and institutions of learning which in coopera- 
tion with the Viet Nam Moratorium Committee do mark October

desire of the American people for peace; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That we urge our administration 
and faculty together with the churches, educational institutions, and 
businesses of Thousand Oaks to join us in this continuing endeavor. 

Senate Resolution #3 

AUTHOR: Senator Son turn 

TO PROVIDE FOR: A definite procedure for allocating ASB funds 

WHEREAS: The current method of allocating funds for the Asso- 
elated Student Body of California Luthran College is understood to 
be based on estimates of Institutional expenses versus projected 
student government needs; and 

WHEREAS: Such as informal procedure of fund allocation restricts 
advanced budgetary planning by the ASB and reduces student govern, 
ment to the level of any other college department; and 

WHEREAS: The needs and desires of students may not be defined 
by student government to be compatible with those of the adminis. 
tration; and 

WHEREAS: The present method has no Inherent safeguards 
against the potentially dangerous situation of disagreement beine 
reflected in financial allotment; 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That a definite procedure 
tor allocating ASB funds be established with the Administration 
and that it be based on a per capita figure which is renegotiate year- 
ly; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That for the first fical year 1970- 
71 the amount of $28.00 per student be set aside for ASB use- and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That such per student allotments 
be considered part of the Comprehensive Fee and not reason for 
an additional per student charge or fee; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That funds remaining in the ASB 
account at the year's end be credited to the next year's account 
and neither returned to the college general fund nor deducted from 
the next year's financial allocation. 

Senate Resolution #4 

AUTHOR: Nancy Dykstra 

TO PROVIDE FOR: A request for an additional financial allot- 
ment from the Administration 

WHEREAS: The actual financial allocation to the Associated 
Student Body has been considerably less than the original esti- 
mates; and 

WHEREAS; Such a discrepancy has caused large budgetary cuts in 
areas of extensive student interest and activity; 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That a request for $1,400 
from the Administration be made as the minimum amount necessary 
for the ASB to meet its pressing financial requirements. 

"The Vietnam Moratorium Is the most significant demonstra- 
tlon of opposition to the war In Viet Nam since the primary results 
of 1968. It Is the only way that the people of the Country can demon, 
strate a second judgment on the war In Viet Nam to those who hold 
political power" — Senator Eugene I. McCarthy 

In less than one week, the most extensive and most broadly based 
expression of anti-war wentiment will take place. C.L.C. will Join 
In this effort. The A.S.B. Senate has already passed a resolution 
supporting the Vietnam Moratorium. They spoke to this Issue in the 
faith that the entire Student community will share their wishes for 

C.L.C. will participate, along with 500 other campuses In declar- 
ing a moratorium on "business as usual" to set Oct. 15th as a day 
set aside for working toward peace In Viet Narrf. 

The idea of a nationwide moratorium began with three ex-workers 
tor Senator Eugene McCarthy. Through the contacts the three men 
developed during Sen. McCarthy's Campaign for President the idea 
oi the moratorium grew. 

One of the basic goals of the National Committee Is to instill in 
student the belief there is still room for a grass roots movement In 
political activity — that there is still room for the individual. More 
than anything the day is one for individual decision and commitment. 

At C.L.C we plan a program that will encourage Individual action 
along with group action. 

On Wed. Oct. 15th, the movie War Games will be shown. War 
Games, was commissioned to be filmed by the B.B.C. After view, 
lng the movie the B.B.C. decided It was too blunt and frank to be 
shown to the general viewing audience. The major purpose for show, 
ing this movie here is to present war in a more realistic setting 
and to remove the glorified John Wayne approach to war. Follow, 
lng the movie the participants In the day will be requested to write 
letters to President Ntxon, and their Senators, and Congressmen. 
After lunch we will march to the downtown shopping center to mall 
our letters. In the evening we will gather to celebrate a Communion 
for Peace. ,_

Senate Resolution #5 

AUTHOR: Senator Hossler 

TO PROVIDE FOR: Action to improve the food served to CLC 

WHEREAS: The Senate recognizes that some student needs are 
essentially basic and must be immediately satisfied; and 

WHEREAS: The food at the CLC cafeteria is the worst in recol- 
lection and is simply not palatable; and 

WHEREAS: The quality of the food prepared by the CLC Food 
Service raises doubts as to whether the amount paid by students 
for board is actually being spent for such and whether profit is 
being attempted at the expense of students; and 

WHEREAS: The general unsanitary appearance of the cafeteria 
is unexcusable and poses serious questions as to the standards 
maintained by the Food Service; and 

WHEREAS: A recent policy restricts on-campus students to eat- 
ins: at the cafeteria; and 

WHEREAS: Neither the students nor the Senate will be pacified 
by one or two decent meals; 

THERFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT: The Senate of California 
Lutheran College support a student boycott of all meals at the 
CLC cafeteria on Wednesday, October 8, 1969 and longer if deemed 
necessary; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT: If improvements are not 
immediately made that the Senate support further moves to include 
student non-payment of the portion of the Comprehensive Fee alio- 
cated to board; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT: The Senate oppose any 
policy which establishes as a prerequisite to on«campus living eating 
in the cafeteria; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT: The undersigned Senators 
and student leaders support and advocate the above and further 
action in order to establish and maintain a much higher level of 
food served to the students of California Lutheran College. 




Mr. Phil Reltan, President 
Associated Student Body 
California Lutheran College 
Thousand Oaks, California 91360 

Dear Phil: 

I have read with great Interest 
the resolution signed by the stu- 
dent body presidents of the col- 
leges, universities and seminar- 
ies of The American Lutheran 
Church, on the subject of the 
war in Vietnam. I have also read 
the resolution of the Senate of 
the Associated Student Body of 
California Lutheran College on 
the same subject. I find in these 
resolutions an expression of deep 
and genuine moral concern over 
this continuing Vietnam conflict, 
and the steps which might be ta- 
ken to bring it to an end. I sa- 
lute you and those associated 
with you for these efforts. 

I share your desire to find ways 
and means by which the desire 
for peace might be expressed. It 
seems right to find a way to ex- 
press this at California Luther- 
an College and in this com muni- 
ty. While I am not ready to join 
In advance endorsement of all 
views which might be expressed, 
I am ready to join in support of 
this effort to bring peace and 
shall encourage my colleagues to 
find ways to do the same. 

Most sincerely, 

Raymond M. Olson

(Remarks of Senator George McGovern in the U.S. Senate) 

On Friday, Sept. 26, 1969, the President announced what appeared 
to be a reduction of 50,000 in draft calls tor 1969. It is to be ac- 
complished by cancelling the Defense Department's previously 
programmed calls of 32,000 for November and 18,000 for December, 
and by spreading the 29,000 October call evenly over the three 
remaining months of the year. 

But the reduction is an illusion. In fact, without the cuts we would 
have had a massive increase in draft calls for the year as a whole. 

From June through October of 1969 the total draft quota was 135, 
000, compared to only 79,000 for the same period a year earlier. 
The inflation of nearly 57,000 In those five months easily left room 
tor a 50,000 reduction. Total draft calls for this year will be only 
about 2 per cent lower than in 1968. 

In effect, what appears as benevolence to the young men who 
might have been taken in November and December, is no more than 
an announcement that they will not be called then because they have 
already gone. They were pressed into service as part of earlier 

The President also announced his intention to move forward on 
draft proposals which will establish a random system of selection, 
to put chance in the place of decisions presently made by some 
4,000 local draft boards with the inspiration and guidance of Selec- 
tive Service Director Lewis Hershey. The period of prime exposure 
to Induction would be reduced from as much as seven years to twelve 

It Is Impossible to respond negatively to such a proposal. Indeed, 
from the standpoint of the eligible pool of manpower, just about any 
change in the Selective Service System would be an improvement. The 
present system seems to rest on the' assumption that exposure to 
compulsory military service, including a war which most Americans 
now regard as a blunder, is tor some reason a healthy process for 
young Americans. 

General Hershey's efforts to use the draft as a punitive device 
— without the delays and complications of due process — place it 
even more sharply In conflict with the fundamental Ideals of a free 
society. No one who believes in those ideals can find grounds for ob. 
jectlon to the changes planned by the President. 

But here again the illusion of meaningful action outweighs the sub. 
stance. The adjustments announced leave intact the most pernicious 
single aspect of the Selective Service System. With or without the 
change, thousands of young American men each year will be compelled 
willing or not, to serve in the armed forces. Their right to liberty, 
their right to follow pursuits of their own choosing, will be denied. 
Their occupations will be determined not by the incentives required 
to attract manpower in the competitive market, but by the dictates 
of intrusive governmental authority. 

In combination with the partial troop withdrawals which are now 
underway, it has been suggested that the attempt to beautify the draft 
and to briefly limit its effect will muffle the voices which are calling 
tor a prompt end to our involvement in Vietnamese affairs. 

If that is the strategy, it is bound to fall. It amounts to a grave 
miscalculation on both the motives and the perception of those who 
seek a change in policy. They object not so much because of personal 
costs, but because they believe In the Ideals for which they have been 
told this country stands. They can see no legitimate interest in Viet- 
nam which could possibly justify the loss of 40,000 lives or even the 
risk of a single additional American. They can see no Interest which 
demands that we neglect crushing problems at home while laying 
billions of dollars at the feet of a corrupt military government 10,000 
miles away. And they can see no reason why a nation founded on 
liberty and professing human dignity as its goal should extract In. 
voluntary service from any of its citizens. 

The draft will not be acceptable until it is gone. The war in Viet, 
nam will not be acceptable until it is over. 
We have waited too long on both. 

Thirty Students 
Aided By ACT 

From financial aid grants totaling $15,000 provided by a program 
begun last vear bv the Lutheran Church In America ("Act In Cri- 
ses Today"), it is being made possible for thirty CLC students 
from minority or lower-economic environments to obtain a nigner 
education through opportunity grants. 

These opportunity grants from ACT are being administered to 
youth all over California by the Pacific Southwest Synod of the LCA. 
They are just part of a $6,500,000 special action drive on the part of 
LCA congregations throughout the nation. ACT's objectives are to 
provide less fortunate people with emergency supplies of food, and 
tor low-cost housing, Job opportunity centers, scholarships for 
seminarians, and better opportunities for qualified high school stu- 
dents seeking college educations. 

Last year in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACT program had its birth 
when delegates to the 1968 LCA Convention there decided that Lu- 
theran churches had a responsibility to involve themselves in a 
special drive for funds to meet the ever-lncreaslng crisis in the 
United States. For as St. John wrote in the New Testament: "If 
a man has enough to live on, and yet when he sees his brother 
in need shuts up his heart against him, how can it be said that the 
love of God dwells In him? Love must not be a matter of words 
or talk; it must be genuine and show itself in action." This piece 
of scripture became the background for the ACT program. 

Contributions to ACT may be made at any LCA church. Specially 
designated envelopes are available for this purpose. 


Land Of 

By Larry Crouch 

What is the real situation in 
America? Is there really racial 
equality or have you been blind- 
ly deluded by the white lie of the 
day: "Things aren't that bad" 
or "It just takes time." Don't 
be pulled into believing that 
"things aren't that bad" be- 
cause they are. Become inform- 
ed, be ready to do something about 
Society's standards that are 
cheating you and feeding you lies 
upon lies. 

You're probably wondering — 
that is if you've got any guts at 
all — what you can do. The first 
thing you can do is come to the 
Avant.Unity meeting Monday 
night, October 13th at 7:30 in 
the Little Theatre (tentative) and 
get an idea of how things rpally 

Find out that things aren't 
that "good" and that "things 
just aren't gonna -wait." Find out 
why you, collectively and Indivi- 
dually, can't afford to wait any 
longer. It's not too late yet, but 
the crises in black and white 
America is about as far as it 
will go. The situation could blow 
completely out of control with- 
out some immediate help from 
you — YES, YOU1II! 

Don't think that you can't help 
by yourself because you can — 
that is, if you've got the guts to 
find out how.

Several years ago, quality reporting was 
an important part of the Echo tradition; but, 
this quality has since disappeared due to an 
increase in relational problems internal to 
the ECHO staff. As the 'turnover of a new 
staff took place last spring (1969) , I 
acquired the position of Advertising Manager. 
At the beginning of this year, I quickly 
realized the lack of an organized Advertising 
Department, and have since greatly increased 
the efficient availability of advertising 
information. Upon the completion of the 
First Issue, the Editor elected for the 
'69-' 70 College Year became aware that he 
would be unable to continue as Editor for 
personal reasons . After the proper channels 
had been notified, I was appointed Editor 
Temporae; until, at a proper time, a new 
Editor for the '69-' 70 College Year would be 
elected by the Student Publications 
Commission. The Second Issue appeared as a 
product of the resigned Editor, the Editor 
Temporae, and a make-shift staff. Upon 
completion of the Second Issue, I solidified 
a working staff and undertook the necessary 
responsibilities in conjunction with the com- 
position of a Third Issue. Upon realizing 
the dire necessity of an Editor capable of 
organizing and executing a newspaper with the 
potential of our yet-fully-realized ECHO, I 
filed application for the Editorship of the 
Mountclef ECHO. 

Having already established relationships 
with members of the News Chronicle (an 
established newspaper) and with students on 
the present staff, the coming year promises 
to see the foundational groundwork laid for 
a long awaited CLC newspaper.

Dear Editor or to whom it may 

In the last Issue of the Mont- 
clef Echo, (Vol. K, No. 2, Oc- 
tober 2, 1969) there appeared 
an article entitled Women's 
Rights. When this particular arti- 
cle was published, it was not 
stated who the author was. Since 
I was the author, I was rather 
upset to discover this fact. The 
main reason I wrote the article 
was so that my constituency would 
be aware of my position, opi- 
nions, and feelings. Now they 
know that someone feels that 
way but not that it is their of. 
flr.ial representative. 

May I also point out that there 
were twenty-seven articles In 
the last issue of the Echo and 
only nine of those articles were 
attributed to a specific author. 
Thank you, 
Candy Maitland 
A WS President. 

Dear Candy; 

Many times it is 
the policy of a news- 
paper not to print 
any by-lines, other 
times a by-line on 
an article is quit 
necessary. A by- 
line on your article 
would have been very 
proper and correct. 
However, due to a 
temporary change in 
the Editorship of 
this newspaper, your 
article was not pro- 
perly by-lined. We 
are sorry for the in- 
convenience it may 
have placed upon you 
and will try to be 
more alert in the 
future .

Anti-War Sentiment At CLC 

(Continued from page 2) 

The New Republic — A Journal of Politics and the Arts stated in 
their editorial on Sept. 20, 1969, "The university is not normally 
organized — and in our opinion should not normally be organized 
— to function as a political institution. But these times are abnor- 
mal. It is the principal custodian of the public interest — the poli- 
ticians — who are most responsible for that, not the democratic 
process, to demostrate the power of persuasion. We hope that every 
member of the academic community from the youngest freshman 
to the august college president and trustee will n.ove into the breach. 
The planned one-day National Convocation of the Community of 
scholars on October 15th, is this opportunity. Seize it." 

The Vietnam Moratorium Committee is asking C.L.C. students 
to cancel classes on Oct. 15th and to go into the community and 
bring the argument for peace to the people. Now is he time for 
students to act, for it is now that they can have their greatest ef. 
feet. Let us end apathy at C.L.C. and in the nationl Make a move 
for peace on October 15. 

Don't mourn for America ...... Work.

classes on October 15, to allow for the participation of the Student 

Body and the faculty in a day for peace sponsored by the Viet 

Nam Moratorium Committee." 

C.L.C.'s student Senate and executive board have given their sup- 
port. It is now time for the student body to speak out actively. On 
Friday in the Mountclef Foyer there will be balloting on the question 
of wnether or not to cancel classes on Oct. 15th. My hope is that you 
will vote for cancellation of classes as a matter of priority. Be- 
cause of the universal effect that Viet Nam has had on all Americans 
this day is set aside for all of us to express our opinions. It is a 
chance for all of us to show our desire for peace and an urgent hope 
for stopage of the war in Viet Nam. 

There were those on the faculty who felt you were maybe being 
cheated by not getting your full fifty two days (or wnatever) of 
classroom activity. What they failed to see is that this institution 
has been cheating students for years by its failure to address Itself 
to the important issue of the day which confronts students. By its 
failure to get involved In the Society around it. 

In my .opinion Oct. 15th will be the most academically sound day 
of the wnole school year. It is a day in which you will be making per. 
sonal judgments and personal committments. Oct. 15th will be a day 
of films and speakers, prayers, and Communion. It will be a day of 
study both inwardly and worldly. 

Above all it will be a day of activism. 

As I have already said it is my hope that on this Friday you will 
vote yes to cancel classes. I do want to stress though that if you vote 
yes you are personally committing yourself to an Academic day 
seeking an end to the War in Viet Nam. 

I share the hone of Senator George S. McGovern when he said. "I 
hope that the Moratorium observance will make clear to the adminis. 
tration that in the continuance of this senseless bloodshed lies the 
seed of National tragedy. It is an effort which merits the responsible 
participation of all Americans who are anxious to reverse a doIIcv 
of military attrition and moral disaster." 
Work for Peace 

On October 15 

Gerald S. Rea 

October 15th: a day for radical epithets against society and our 
government? Not really. Call it a day designated for a popular ex. 
pression of a desire for the end of the war, and end to death on the 
battlefield, an end to grief at home. 

Did you ever wonder what goes through the mind of a young 
soldier In Vietnam as he lays bleeding to death thousands of miles 
away from his home and loved ones? His feeling is not new, that 
is for certain. People have been killing each other for a long time. 

As his blood runs Into the waters of an Asian rice paddy his mind 
is filled with the futility of war. Hallucinations of life-long memories, 
people, Mom and Dad, and God fill his head until all too quickly 
the curtain falls — the play is over — a flop In the first act. Should 
we continue to allow the Vietnam Theatre to snuff out the lives of 
a promising cast in the Play of Life? 

Peace is an overused word. Eternal peace is probably impossible 
on earth for the simple reason that there will always be the ag- 
gressor and his victim. Self-defense Is forgiveable, but is Vietnam? 

To use October 15th as anything but a constructive day for pc ce 
would be a sin; not against God as much as a sin against the fa. .en 
bodies of men, women, and children In Vietnam as well as Vater- 
loo or Jericho. Those of you who might be tempted to hit the beach, 
sleep, get loaded or drunk should try Involvement this time. It 
might be a real trip.

Dr. Ernest Labrenz, Jr., comes to CLC from Lutheran High School 
in Los Angeles and Harbor Junior College. He obtained his B.S. 
degree from Concordia College in Seward, Nebraska, in 1954; both 
his MA and his PhD were earned at USC. With extensive background 
in tiie field of the theater, he brings his experience to students at 
CLC in his Theory of the Drama Class. In the spring quarter, he 
will be taking the Shakespeare class. 

Dr. Herbert H. Umback participates this year in the professor- 
exchange program with Valparaiso that was begun a few years ago 
between CLC and Valpo. Receiving his diploma from Concordia 
Junior College in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1926, he went on to gra- 
duate from Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Lewis in 1929. 
He was awarded his MA from Washington University in 1930 and 
his PhD from Cornell University in 1934. Since 1934, he has been a 
professor at Valparaiso University. At CLC, he teaches the English 
survey course. 

Mrs. Karyn R. Pederson comes to CLC as another recruit from 
Valparaiso. She received her MA from the University of North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill. At the student retreat, she apparently 
confused several CLC'ers as to whether she was a student or facul- 

Dr. Mary Margaret Thomas provided a welcome change for the 
previously understaffed sociology department. She graduated from 
the College of St. Benedict In St. Joseph, Minnesota and then pro- 
ceeded to obtain her MA and PhD from USC. Before coming to the 
Kingsmen campus, she was an assistant professor at the School of 
Social Welfare at USC. 

Mr. David Wong, the new addition to the math department, re-

Review Of A Review 

by Beki Frock 

"Alice's Restaurant." Produc- 
ed by Hillard Elklngs and Joe 
Manduke. Directed by Arthur 
Penn. Starring Arlo Guthrie, 
Pat Quinn and James Broderick. 
Released by United Artists. 

A review by Bill Sievert of the 
College Press Service on this 
current cinema attraction has 
given me no choice but to com- 
ment on the film and the record, 
ing of "Alice's Restaurant." 

According to Mr. Sievert, the 
film is a disappointment to those 
fans of the recording. He had 
hoped for a slap-stick comedy 
because the considers the song to 
be "very funny." Sievert writes 
"But the humor is secondary to 
the serious, sad and often depres- 
sing side of Arlo Guthrie's ad- 
ventures ..." I would suggest 

rather, that this Is the exact 
focus of the song — a sad real- 
ity interjected with humor. 

My only contact with the film 
itself was an excerpt viewed 
on the "Merv Griffin Show." 
It was the draft-board scene and 
I did find it to be humorous — 
but humorous in a very real 
sense. It was the humor that re- 
sults from laughing at absurd 
realities of our modern world. 

Mr. Sievert, In my opinion, 
is not aware of these finer sub- 
tleties of the recording when he 
writes that "Alice's Restaurant" 
Is not a slap-stick, hilarious se- 
quel to the song. "Alice's Res- 
taurant," as a song, Is not slap- 
stick — it is a song of the serious 
yet humorous absurdities of our 
contemporary systems. 

Who, then, would expect any. 
thing different from the movie? 

SPURS 1969 


Joan Ericson 

The twenty girls who appeared at school Monday did not just 
happen to shop at the same store while buying their fall wardrobes. 
They are members of CLC's chapter of National Spurs, the sopho- 
more women's service club, which Is celebrating Its third year at 
CLC. These girls were chosen in the spring and have been organiz- 
ing under the leadership of their President, Carol Lund. Other 
officers chosen by the group before the summer were Vice-Presi- 
dent Mlndy Dunderland; Maren Radke, Secretary; Nancy Stocklnger, 
Treasurer; Elizabeth Wilcockson, Historian; Joan Ericson, Editor, 
and Jane Beckman, songleader. 

Spur members give much of their time to serving the school. 
Already they have helped by ushering at the Opening Convocation, 
by serving at the reception for the football players' parents after 
the game against Redlands, and Spurs also served at the President's 
annual reception. This year they plan to continue tutoring the girls 
at the Unfinished Symphony Home for Girls in Agoura. Throughout 
the year, Spurs will be sponsoring service projects and will also 
be selling donuts and fruit in the dorms one night a week as a fund- 
raising project, and they hope it will be a spirit-raising one as well 
for those who want an excuse for a study break. 


chance to prove yourselves on Roller Skates has come. Friday, 
October 10, the Junior Class has made arrangements to meet at 
Skate-teen Rollerskating Rink from 7:30 — 11:30. The cost Is only 
$1.25 (this includes your skates). Juniors, bring your ideas for 
events to the next class meeting. 



SOPHOMORE CLASS — The Sophomore Class has two definite 
dates in the coming year to sponsor activities for the Student 
Body of C.L.C. One of these will be the traditional Soph. Shack, 
with an, as yet undecided them. Many different ideas have been 
mentioned to fill the other date. A Hay ride or an Ice Cream Feast 
are two of the possibilities. 

Looking into the near future, the Class of '72 has the opportunity 
to bring the fantastic hypnotist, Mr. George Sharp, back to C.L.C. 
for a third consecutive year. The date is not definite, but wheels 
are turning. 


Preparations are being made for the election of Freshman Class 
officers and Senators. In addition, a special election will be held In 
conjunction with the Freshman Senate election to fill the vacancies 
created by a Sophomore Senator's transfer and by the resignation 
of ASB Treasurer Gary Scott. 

The election schedule Is as follows: 

Saturday, October 11 — Petitions for Freshman Class officers 
due at NOON in the CUB. 

Monday, October 13 — Election Assembly — 7:00 p.m. Gym. 
Introduction of candidates for Freshman Class officers and Senators. 

Tuesday, October 14 — ELECTION: Freshman Class officers 

Saturday, October 14 — Petitions for Freshman Senators due at 
NOON in the CUB. 

Tuesday, October 21 — ELECTION: Freshman Class Senators, 
Sophomore Senator, & ASB Treasurer 

Polls open 11:00 a.m. — 7:00 p.m. Mount Clef Foyer. 
Election regulations and summaries are available in the CUB. 
Campaigning may begin one week prior to respective elections. 


For the first time in Cal Lutheran's history, the Freshman foot- 
ball team will have its own cheerleaders. Don Marsic, a member 
of the Knaves, instigated the idea and supervised the final selec- 
tion made by members of the Freshman team. 

Try-outs were held In the Mountclef Foyer, Thursday evening, 
October 2. The girls tried out In small groups and performed the 
Cal Lutheran yell. Final selection was based on ability, enthusiasm, 
appearance, adaptability, and spirit. Those chosen were: Mary 
Warden.Head, Pam Grorud, Jeri Johnson, and Katie Schnell. 

The main purpose of the Freshman cheerleaders Is to promote 
support for the Frosh team. They will attend all Freshr. *mes 
and In general, serve to increase spirit and enthusiasm for Frosh 

Another tremendous drama 
club meeting was held Tuesday 
September 30, at 7:30 p.m. In 
that lush plush "Little Thea- 
tre" our own Broadway. Thou- 
sands thronged the opening but 
only a select few were finally 
admitted. The returning stars 
were welcomed by their fans. 
Mr. Don Haskell, our ex-mouse- 
keteer (remember .Donnie?) ex- 
cited all the new prospects with 
his normal tact and grace. Among 
the torrid topics discussed were: 
the drama banquet, the initiation 
of eligible members Into the 
drama fraternity, and last but not 
least, the upcoming productions. 

Thkee shows have already been 
cast. The mainstage production of 
this quarter, "The Birds," Is a 
comedy by Aristophanes which 

features Gary Odom, Rick Rull- 
man, Penny Keuser, and a bevy 
of eager freshman. The chil- 
dren's theatre highlights the 
story of the "Brave Little Tay- 
lor," and the church drama will 
be fortunate enough to tour San 
Francisco in the upcoming weeks. 

For those of you who feel left 

out, there is still one more chance 

to get into this exciting field of 

endeavor. The drama club's own 

production of "Ladies in Retire- 

ment" will not be cast until 

October 21 and 22. Try-outs are 

open to the entire student body. 

So. . . if you are still reluctant- 

ly waiting in the wings, there 

is still a chance for fame, star- 

dom, and Intellectual stimulation. 

As yet there are only a number 

of limited vacancies In our club, 

but there still may be a spot for 

you. So make yourself available 

the night of October 14 for the 

next EXCITING drama club meet- 

lng. FUN, FUN, FUN. . . Need 

we say more?

Alex Haley, Internationally 
known writer, world traveler and 
a great platform favorite, comes 
to the Gym at CLC on Wednes. 
day evening, October 22, to speak 
before the Public. 

Hailed as "a master story- 
teller" for his knack of hold, 
ing audiences spell-bound, Alex 
Haley has the gift of saying strong 
things in a quiet way. An inde- 
pendent thinker, he brings the 
perspectives of history and tra- 
vel to the social crises of our 

Alex Haley had written nun- 
dreds of magazine articles be- 
fore his first book, the award- 
winning classic "The Autobio- 
graphy of Malcolm X." This 
book remains a top best-seller 

after four years with over one 
million copies being read in 
translations in eight languages. 
Malcolm X's life now is being 
made into a motion picture bas- 
ed on the book. 

Haley's second book, to be pub- 
lished in Spring, 1970, is an un- 
precedented tracing and docu- 
menting of an unbroken nine gene- 
rations of his own maternal fami- 
ly's history back to a tiny Gam- 
bia, Africa, village and a Man- 
dinka tribal family circa 1700. 
Haley doggedly pursued slender 
linguistic clues through seven 
years of field and primary re- 
search in North America, Eu- 
rope and finally West African 
bush country. Haley's work, even 
before its publication, is being 
hailed as a "genealogical mira-

the award will cover the full 
tuition and fees required by the 
graduate school, an annual al- 
lowance of $200.00 for books and 
supplies, and a monthly stipend 
to help pay the recipient's living 
costs. The awards will be made 
for either ten months (academic 
year only) or twelve months (in- 
eludes summer session). 

To be eligible, a candidate 
must have received his bachelor

And what is Alex Haley's own 
story? Born In 1921 in Ithaca, 
New York, he is the son of a col- 
lege professor (now retired) and 
the brother of a Kansas State 
Senator and a Washington, D.C. 

He attended North Carolina 
Teachers College until his en.

his writing while in the service, 
Alex Haley entered civilian life

ter. He has had scores of arti. 
cles in such publications as Har- 
per's, Atlantic Monthly, Cosmo- 
politan. Sports, True, This Week 
and The New York Times Maga- 

At one time he was a regular 
writer for the Saturday Evening 
Post and Reader's Digest. For 
the past several years he has 
been reaching millions of readers 
through his interviews with the 
famous and controversial in Play, 
boy Magazine. Past interviewees 
have Included Dr. Martin Luther 
King, George Lincoln Rockwell, 

and such diverse personalities as 
Phyllis Diller and Sammy Davis, 


He has made hundreds of TV

has also recognized his gifts. 
Since early 1968, he has been 
"guest professor" and writer- 
in-residence at Hamilton College, 
Clinton, New York. Also resident 
with him there are his wife and

Camarillo Experience 
Valuable To Students 

Frank Nausin learns what it means to be 
engaged! Full coverage in next issue.

Every Sunday morning a group 
of students from California Lu- 
theran College visits the chil- 
dren's unit of the Camarillo State 

iio&picai. For twohoui « liniy Uiik, 

walk, sing, and play with the chil- 
dren showing friendship and con. 

Cal Lutheran student volun- 
teers claim that their exper- 
iences at the mental hospital are 
very worthwhile and rewarding. 
Former C.L.C. student, Linda 
Gawthorne, having visited Cama- 
rillo regularly for nearly two 
years stated, ". . . I wouldn't 
miss going for anything — well, 


Duck Soup 

Sunday, October 19th, the Con- 
cert-Lecture Committee Dre. 
sents its second film program 
of the year. After a smashing 
well-attended success with Spar- 
tacus last Friday night, the new 
presentation will consist of two 
Marx Brothers comedy films, 
"Duck Soup," and "Horse Fea- 
thers." The time of the showing 
will be 8 p.m. in the Gym. 

In Horse Feathers, the Marx 
Brothers win a college yell of 
roaring approval as they clown 
with the coeds, pester the profs 
and caper over the Campus while 
turning a championship football 
game Into a rollicking riot. 

In Duck Soup, in attempting 
to prevent revolution in Fre. 
donia, land of the spree and home 
of the knave, the Marx Brothers 
start a riotous war of their own 
against a rival knigdom. A co. 
medy classic that will live on for 

almost anything. I fell down the 
dorm stairs one Sunday and broke 
my glasses; I did miss that time." 

Miss Gawthorne also told of a 
uoi .aai visit to Camarillo: "As 
we drive up we see Sherrie — she 
always waits for us in the play 
yard. The first thing she says 
is, "Are you coming next week?" 
And when we reassure her that 
we are, she exclaims, "Oh, Boy," 
Sherrie seems to mark the pass, 
ing of her weeks by our coming 
and going - she has really noth- 
ing else to look forward to. 

As we ring the bell at the door, 
all the children gather by it 
waiting for us. Pam is the first 
one there — she's 13, big, un- 
gainly, and just plain ugly. Es- 
pecially after she gave herself 
a haircut. But we all love her. 
Colene is also speedy in getting 
to us — she's so afraid of being 
rejected. She is a beautiful little 
girl of 8, very inquisitive and 
what a chatterbox. 

Then there Is Laurie, a shy, 
sweet little girl of 8. Laurie is 
my "special" friend and soon 
as she sees me she runs up and 
puts her hand in mind. Laurie 

has a baby doll which she loves 
dearly but at times she'll hit or 
hurt it and then laugh. It makes 
me wonder if her parents punish- 
ed her in this way. Last there Is 
Mary, who looks like a china doll 
with her black hair and fair skin. 
She's just a little bit of a thing. 
I want so badly to get close to her 
but she won't let anyone touch 
her and when you speak to her, 
she repeats what you say. It 
excited everybody when Mary 
sat on our Santa Claus* lap." 

Do you have two hours a week 
to give to a friend? If you do, 
meet In Alpha Foyer Sunday 
morning at 10:00. 

This week's response was ex. 
cellent. About thirty students 
found the time to go to Camarillo 
Sunday. If this enthusiasm conti. 
nues, the program will be expand- 
ed to Include a boy's ward. 

The girls at Camarillo look 
forward to each visit anxiously. 
They ask the volunteers to come 
back Sunday after Sunday. If you 
can find the time, why don't you 
come Sunday? It will be a most 
rewarding experience. Think 
about it. . . 

Influenza Vaccine 
Offered Students 

An anti-flu vaccine will be 
available this week to students 
at California Lutheran College, 
announced Naomi Benson, cam. 
pus nurse. 

The new virus vaccine, Fluo. 
gen, offers maximum protection 
against influenza, with a mini, 
mum chance of reaction, said 
Miss Benson. 

Fluogen provides protection 
against both Hong Kong and Asian 
strains of Influenza. 

It will be available to C.L.C. 
students on Friday from 2 to 5 
p.m. at the Student Health Serv. 
ice. The cost is $1.25 per Injec 

According to Miss Benson, the 
Injections are optional, and if 
a student had the initial series 
or a booster last year, only a 
single booster Is needed this 

For a person who missed hav. 
ing a booster last year or has 
never been immunized against 
influenza, it will be necessary 
to have a series of two Injec 
tions this year. Notification of 
the second injection will be made 
by the Student Health Service.

Associated Student Body 


Concert And Lecture 
Membership Changed 

A realignment in student mem. 
bership and financial support of 
the College Committee on Con. 
certs and Lectures was passed 
last Thursday by the Associa. 
ted Student Body Senate. 

This resolution was authored 
by LeRoy Rehrer who stated that 
the associated Student Body 
would continue to recognize the 
academic and cultural promo- 
tions of the College Committee on 
Concerts and Lectures as legiti- 
mate student concerns. 

He also stated that the ASB 
does not desire, at this point, 
to establish an independent stu- 
dent operated and funded speak, 
er-lecture program although pro- 
posals have been forwarded urg. 
ing the ASB to withdraw mone- 
tary and personnel support from 
the Concert. Lecture Committee. 
Although the Academic-Social 
fee has been heavily used for the 

Concert. Lecture Committee's 
program, it is to be considered 
as ASB monetary source and ta- 
ken together with the direct con. 
tribution from the ASB budget 
accounts for more than three 
quarters of the committee's fund- 

Student membership on the 
Committee is presently limited 
to one third of the total members 
and all programs and speakers 
of the Concert-Lecture Commit, 
tee must be viewed and evaluated 
to the contemporary and relevant 
educational needs of the student. 

As the needs of the students 
cannot adequately be defined as 
long as students can be overrul. 
ed in the selection of programs 
and speakers, the ASB regards 
such an arrangement as unjust 
and indefensible in an area of 
such intense student interest. 

Young Republicans 
Seek Members 

The California Lutheran Young 
Republicans Club is seeking in. 
terested students for member, 

The first meeting was held on 
October 8. In addition to the elect- 
ed officers (Randall Moen, Presi- 
dent; Robert Leake, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Grace Larsen, Secretary; 
and Adel Broas, Treasurer), ap- 
proximately 20 other interested 
students were in attendance. 

Future plans and goals were 
formulated, one of which is the 
publishing of the THE COL. 
sive CLt Republican newsletter 
in which the functions and ideas 
of the club will be expressed. 
The editors are Bill Fisher and 
Dayonda Rupley. THE COLLE. 
C-IATE ELEPHANT is sent to 
members and non-members 
alike. If you are not a member,

irreverent comedy spoofing po-

war. Dr. Adams is using a pro- 
vocative combination of the'ori. 
ginal play edited by Peter -D.

by Walter Kerr. Aristophanes 
jumps from broad farce to po. 
lished wit, from obscene fool- 
ing to beautiful lyrics in his at. 
tacks on human affairs through 
allegory. In the play, two A. 
thenians journey to find Tereus, 
whom the gods changed to a hoc 
peo-bird. The Athenians convince 
Tereus and all his bird-compa- 
nions that they should build a 

barrier between the earth and 
the gods, refusing to allow sa-

unless people pay tribute to the

Eichman Resigns From S.P.C. 

I formerly submit this letter 
to the Student Publications Com. 
mission, the student senate, and. 
any other interested parties. 

I was appointed to the Student 
Publications Commission in the 
Spring of 1969, since that time I 
have witnessed very little dealing 
with student publications; instead 
there has been a constant per- 
sonality struggle both from with- 
in the commission, and outside of 
that commission. During this 
time there have been six people 
chosen bv the commission as edi- 
tors of the Campanile and Echo. 
In the Spring, Mary Dversdall, 
and Adele Broas were selected 
as editors of this years Campa. 
nile. They were selected on a 

sound basis, unfortunately at this 
time the SPC ceased operating 
as a responsible organization. 
Chris Walker was selected as 
Editor of the Echo; he was not 
approved by the Student Senate. 
Bill Bowers was selected as Edi- 
tor of the Echo; he was approved 
by the Student Senate. On Septem- 
ber 30, 1969 Bill Bowers resigned 
for personal and academic rea- 

sons; the commission met on Oc- 
tober 1, 1969 and appointed Doug 
Hurley as Editor Temporae. 

On October 9, 1969 the SPC met 
to select a permanent editor, in 
a five to two vote with one ab- 
stention Doug Hurley was select- 
ed. The Student Senate referred 
his appointment back to the SPC 
pending further investigation. 

It is my belief that an editor 
should be chosen on the basis 
>f 1) qualifications /experience, 
») the philosophical directions 
the publication would take, and 3) 
the personal integrity of the edi- 
tor himself. This was the basis 
for selection of Adele and Mary 
only. The battle for editorship 
of the Echo has evolved into a 
battle of personal attacks, and 
dirty politics. 

For these reasons I resign as 
a member of the 1969-1970 Student 
Publications Commission. I do 
this with regret that things 
couldn't have been different, and 
strongly feel that under present 
conditions no one will be selected 
on the proper basis. I do not wish 
to be Involved in something as 
irrational, unorganized, and far-

Jean Blomquist is one of ten freshmen 
running for Senator. Why has she risen 
to this challenge? In her own words, "I 
have a sincere desire to take an active 
part' in student government here at CLC." 

She has attended a majority of the 
Senate meetings and has become acquainted 
with several Senators, ASB officers, and 
other students leaders. Thus, she is 
becoming familiar with- the issues con- 
cerning the students and the college. 

"Fine," you say, "but is she quali- 
fied?" Consider the facts: She has been 
ASB President of her high school and Junioi 
Class President. She also served -on the 
California Student Advisory Board on Edu- 
cation and the California Association of 
Student Councils. All this adds up to 
three active years on Student Council. 

Miss Blomquist summarizes her ob- 
jectives: "I acknowledge the challenge 
of representing others. I've done it 
before and I'd like the opportunity to 
do it aqain. " 

(Submitted by the committee to elect 
Jean Blomquist Fr. Senator) 

cical as the present Student rtib- 
lications Commission. 

I leave with one suggestion. 
That the present commission for. 
get about the Echo for now, and 
instead devote full energies to- 
ward forming a solid policy guide, 
and constitution. This would take 
care of such problems as vot- 
ing procedures, who is and isn't 
eligible to run for the editorship, 
a fair and reasonable process of 
judging the applicants, etc. After 
having done this the present com- 
mission should be disbanded, 
there should be an ASB election 
for a new SPC commissioner, 
a new commission should be 
selected, and on the basis of a 
strong and equitable policy guide 
select an editor fortheMountclef 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mark W. Eichman

Last Thursday night, when the Senate 
met in K-l, an Editor for the ECHO was 
not approved. Since an Editor was not 
disapproved, I was appointed Editor 
Temporae for an additional week. 

One topic which has not been men- 
tioned is the goals which we, on the 
present temporary staff, are already 
striving to achieve. Here are a few 
of these goals: 

1£ New Editors; Humanities, Social 
Science, and Natural Science Editors 
to bring to the students relevant aca- 
demic studies, classes, and speakers 
who will help arrouse some intellectual 
discussion about issues in the paper. 

2) Journalism Class; the possibility 
of bringing a Journalism Class on cam- 
pus sometime in the future, provided 
there would be enough student interest 
to make it feasible. 

3) More comprehensive participation 

4) Professional Advisor; and 

5) Enlarged facilities. 

The next issue will be incorperating 
several of these ideas.

MOlintClBf CLC Celebrates Peace 



Student Initiate 
Gains Support 

The outcome of Student Initi- 
ative Number One is the sole 
responsibility of the Associated 
Students of California Lutheran 
College. Whether or not the initi- 
ative is voted upon, approved and 
enacted lies totally in the stu. 
dents support. 

ASB President, Phil Reitan, 
stated that "the rejection of the 
in loco parentis approach to edu. 
cation and the institutionalization 
of that theory" was one of the 
greatest reasons to support this 
first student initiative. He further 
stated: "The premise that a 
school operates 'in place of the 
parent' may have some validity 
for the early years of a child's 
schooling. But now, day by day, 
this theory is being challenged 

— even at junior high school 
levels. While supposedly inferior 

— non-college young adults have 
lived unhampered by fatherly ad- 
vice in urban communities, the 
young elite of exactly the same 
age have lived under exceeding, 
ly unadult circumstances here at 
CLC. Ironically the freedom at 
this college has often been less 
than experienced in high school." 

ASB Vice-President, David 
Lewis, in regard to the "in loco 
parentis" restriction stated that 
it is "morally, legally and aca- 
demically unjust." 

He went on to another point 
that "our conduct (at CLC) is 
governed by what I (David Lewis) 
term the Christian ethic. The 
administration assumes to know 
what is Christian and arbitra- 
rily imposes its understanding 
on students in the form of social 
rules and restrictions." 

It is the Vice-President's con- 
tendon that the "college is not 
to be the paternal guardian over 
the moral, intellectual and social 
activities of the student. In deed, 
it is the right of students to be 
free from such restrictions if 
the essence of academic free- 
dom is to hold any meaning. If 
the student is to learn the proc- 

ess of self-direction in pursuing 
his ideas, the context of his ac 
tivities must be freedom rather 
than restriction. Of what value 
is our assertion that we must 
be free to examine all beliefs, 
if we submit to being locked 
up and separated? Certainly, be- 
cause we attend a private insti. 
tution does not mean that we 
abdicate our rights and relin- 
quish our freedoms." 

As AWS President, Candy Mait- 
land, strongly supports this first 
student initiative: "I (Candy Mait. 
land) am in support of the initl- 
ative and petition now in circu- 
lation and also of the referen- 
dum taking place on Thursday 
(today). This issue cannot be 
limited to the women students of 
this campus. It is an issue which 
concerns all the students on this 
campus. The women students are 
not a special interest group, 
their needs and desires are the 
same as the men students." 

After stating that she felt that 
the "proper channel" was being 
used to rectify the situation, 
Candy urged "all students to sign 
the petition and to support the 

Phil Reitan also believes that 

"a student initiative is the most 

proper and legal way to change 

the present hour regulations." 

As stated in the Constitution 

of the Associated Student Body 

(Article VII, Section 1 . Initia. 

tive): "Upon petition of 10 per 

cent of the Student Body, an 

initiative measure must be placed 

before the Student Body immed- 

iately in an election for approval 

by a majority of those voting. 

If approved, that legislation shall 

go into effect immediately." 

The points presented in Student 
Initiative No. 1 are as follows: 
The students of California Lul 
theran College desire to resolve 
the issue of women's dormitory 
hours openly. 

Policies which are meant to 
force obedience to a moral code 
(Continued on page 3) 

Wednesday, October 15, 1969, 
was a day much planned for and 
anticipated with mixed emotions. 
The central theme for Peace 
Moratorium Wednesday was in- 
volvement in activities toward 
peace in Vietnam. 

The peace centered schedule 
of events began at 9: 30 in the CUB 
and fire circle with an hour of 
making posters and writing let. 
ters to various Congressmen and 
to President Nixon. Letter writ- 
ing paper, envelopes, and ad. 
dresses were available in the 
CUB. Many took this opportunity 
to express their personal reac 
tions pro and con concerning the 
I United States troops in Vietnam 
. and there were also numerous 
letters written expressing rea. 
sons for participation in the af. 
teraoon march. One letter writ, 
ten by Melinda Millerman, CLC 
Junior, to her Congressman John 
J. McFall, stated a sentiment 
repeated by many others. It read 
"Our students are marching to 
encourage peace," and instead of 
undercutting President Nixon's 
peace efforts, Melinda, along with 
other students were marching to 
show their concern of being the 
instigators of peace. 

The Game of War 

The fact that this BBC com. 
missioned film was banned from 
being shown on television be- 
cause of its impact was made 
clear as the terrible reality of 
this Cinema Technique award 
winner was revealed to us. Al. 
though it concerned the hypo, 
thetical occurrance of a Thermo- 
nuclear war between England 
and Russia, the results of the 
ensuing nuclear bombing on the 
citizens of England were grotes- 
quely shocking. Based on the 
bombings of Hiroshima and Naga- 
saki during World War n, the ef- 
fects on the people and property 
were realistically portrayed. 

The first and most significant 
reaction was total confusion all 
over the country. Because of the 
uninformed populace, the 2V2 to 

3 minute warning gave little time 
for preparation against the 
bombs. As a result, the fire 
storms and radioactive fall-out 
were too strong a force against 
the limited fall-out shelters and 
general optimistic attitude about 
war. As one interviewed woman 
said, "No, there won't be a war. 
I'm quite convinced of that." That 
the Ecumenical Councils can be 
so naive about the entire situa- 
tion is also sad. One stand con- 
cerning nuclear bombs read that 

we do not need to love nuclear 
bombs, but we must live with them 
as long as they are clean and of 
a good family. Other revealing 
characteristics of our society 
were seen in the care taken to pre. 
serve marriage licenses after the 
hope of saving people diminished. 

Even though we are intellec 
tually in a nuclear age, emotion, 
ally we are still back in the stone 
age. This is demonstrated

'Pink House 

Every Wednesday evening for 
an hour between 9:00 and 10:00 
there is an opportunity to en. 
counter the living Jesus Christ 
as revealed by the Holy Spirit 
in the Bible. 

On October 29, Bob Swindle, 
pastor of a non-denomi national 
church in Van Nuys will speak. 
Geoff Sarkissian, a Junior at 
UCSB will be at the pink house 
on November 5. On November 
12, Dr. Ray Rempt, Ph. D. in 
Physics from UCLA and Youth 
Director at Prince of Peace Lu- 
theran Church in Costa Mesa will 
speak. The evening of Novem. 
ber 19 is open for a variety of 
other teachers. 

On Friday nights there is cur. 
rently a Bible study of Jesus as 
the fulfillment of the Jewish Mes. 
siah as presented by Tim Weir. 

These meetings have been or. 
ganized by individual Christian 
students at CLC who want to help 
make your lives more meaning, 
ful. Want to hear and study the 
Word of God? Want to deepen 
your relationship with the Lord? 
Welcome to the pink house. 

A Stable And A 
, Coffee House 

The Coffee House of CLC has 
been an idea and a hope for three 
years. This year it will become 
a reality. Concrete plans are un. 
derway for a November opening. 
An interview with Terry Rakow, 
CUB director and coffee house 
co-ordinator, has brought many 
new ideas and plans to the sur. 

The foundation for the cof- 
fee house has been built for some, 
time now on CLC property. The 
Janss Corporation donated a thir. 
ty-year old stable for the Coffee 
House to the CLC students. Spe. 
cial permission for use of the 
building was required because 
of its age. The Thousand Oaks 
City Council has granted at least 
five years use to the college. 

Architectural plans for con- 
struction of the Coffee House 
show detailed planning on the 
part of those involved. Accord, 
ine to the plans, the stable will 
be sectioned into two parts with 
approximately twenty feet of ad. 
ded length built between the two 
sets of stalls. On each side of 
the stable are three stalls, all 
with a specific use intended. 
Three stalls will be conference 
rooms, one will be the snack-bar 
another the stage area, and the 
sixth, the restrooms. 

The decor will be "authentic 
stable" with the exception of the 
snack-bar which must meet more 
contemporary health standards. 
The snack-bar will serve coke, 
coffee, ice cream, donuts, pop- 
corn and hot dogs. As the Cof. 
fee House comes under the Col. 
lege Union System and is main- 
tained through student personnel, 
the food will courtesy of 
the cafeterias' food service. 

An opening activity under con. 
sideration is an initia l.carving 
party. One entire wall will be 
used solely for the carving of 
students' Initials. Other sug. 
gested activities are poster paint, 
ing, wall painting (with washable 
paints), lectures, dances, mo- 
vies (cartoons once a week) and 
rap sessions. 

Hours will be from 7 p.m. to 
11 p.m. on week-nights and 7 p.m. 
to 2 a.m. on week-ends. It will 
be available to on-campus groups 
desiring to hold day-meetings

Odom Leads p| ay 


For all of CLC's avid theater fans, Gary Odom 

is a well known figure In all areas of Drama. 

Beginning with a small comedy role in "South 

Pacific" his Sophomore year, Gary develoDed a 

flair for livening up villain roles with his ample 

wit and hilarious pantomime. The list of his thea- 

ter credits is endless, but here is just a taste of 

his comedy accomplishments: Charlie Cowell, anvil 

salesman (villain) in "Music Man;" Gremlo, the 

dirty old man in "Taming of the Shrew;" the ludi. 

crous General McBoom in " Pantagleise, " who 

satirizes the military mentality better than could 

any words; Corporal Schultz, the bumbling Ger. 

man guard of a prisoner.of.war camp in "Stalag 

17;" "Sound of Music's" arrogant HerrZeller, who 

shouted "Hell Hitler" whenever at loss for words; 

in this summer's musical comedy "Pajama Game" 

the authoritarian Mr. Hassler, president of Sleep- 

tite Pajama Factory, who was paranoid of his em. 

ployees and in the part of William the "gay," 

flower-eomedy.relief in "The Drunkard," the sum. 

mer melodrama on temperance. 

To this impressive comedy background, Gary 
now adds the lead role in Aristophanes, "The 
Birds," playing October 24, 25, 31 and November 
1 and 2 in the Little Theater at 8:15. 

Pisthetarius, the comic lead, is a challenging 
role because of the many extremes within the cha. 
racter's personality. He comes from Athens to es- 
cape the follies of civilization and rebellion of the 
birds against the gods and mankind. His illogical 
but moving arguments for bird.supremacy, his 
mock.sympathy for the "degradation" of the birds' 
present situation; his confused leadership in the 
planning of Cloudcuckooland (a combination castle 
for the birds and barrier between earth and hea. 
ven). his side-splitting horror interlopers appear 
in his newly created utopia-all demand a combi- 
nation of wit, sarcasm, and bouyant humor. Gary 
Odom, already disrupting rehearsals by keeping 
the cast rolling with laughter, is well on his way 
to bringing Pisthetarius to life. 

Retire To Goes On 



What is "Ladies in Retire- 
ment?" You've been seeing signs 
all over the campus announcing 
its advent upon CLC. They were 
a little hard to understand, but 
if you recognized Miss Penny 
Keuser's handwriting (she's pub- 
licity chairman for the Drama 
Club) you knew that it's happen, 
ing with the "in" group, 
the Drama Club, in case 
didn't know. 

"Ladles in Retirement" is a 
show that is being done entire- 
ly by the Drama Club students. 
Try-outs were held Tuesday and 
Wednesday under the auspices 
of director Don Haskell. Six ta-

Senior Class 
Shows Action 

On October 7, the first meet, 
ing of the Senior class officers 
was held. If the enthusiasm ex. 
hiblted by the class officers is 
an indication of the seniors' wil- 
lingness to work, then this can 
be a great year. Our first pro- 
ject as a class will be a pep 
rally at Shakey*s Pizza Par- 
lor on November 6. Something 
new will be added to CLC's pep 
rallys on this night. For the 
first time, the Knave Rookie Show 
will be performed for the stu- 
dent body at large. In the past 
this annual event has been put 
on for the football players the 
night before the Alumni game. 
Also, a Dallas Cowboys* high- 
light film and the Simon Fra- 
zier Game film will be shown. 

Homecoming festivities begin 
the week of November 10th 
through the 15th and the Senior 
class will be selling mums for 
the dance and game. Cathy Ro- 
man will be in charge of this 

January 17th is another calen. 
dar date for the Senior class 
which may be used for a Tahi- 
dan Night In the gym. This even 
would include authentic Tahidan 
dancers doing the traditional fire 
dance and their famous belly 
dance. This activity has not been 
confirmed yet because that day 

may also be used for a special 
class function off campus. 

We are in the process of start, 
ing a Management Intern Pro. 
gram at CLC which will pro. 
vide meaningful employment for 
our graduates and possibly sum. 
mer employment for undergra. 
duates. Paul Blodget, vice.presi. 
dent of the Senior class, has been 
in to talk with Hal Kambeck, the 
school comptroller, and the out- 
look on a program of this na- 
ture are promising. Also we are 
expecting assistance from the 
director of the Management In- 
tern program at Stanford Uni. 
verslty. We are also working 
on having a Career Guidance 
day sponsored by the federal 
government at CLC during the 
winter or spring quarter. 

As of this early date, the se- 
lection of the Senior class gift 
has not been made. Any pro. 
posais from class members are 
welcomed and should be directed 
to Cathy Roman, secretary. 

The above mentioned is a 
schedule of the events and pro. 
grams which will be taking place 
this quarter. The direction In 
which we will go as a class will 
be discussed at our first class 
meeting on October 22 at 8:30 
p.m. in the gymnasium. 



On the evening of October 15, a 
small group gathered In the 
Little Theatre to hear Mr. Jess 
Castro, instructor of Mexican. 
American Studies at Moo mark 
Junior College. He spoke on 
"The' Mexican-American In Con- 
temporary Society" and brought 
to light some problems often 
overlooked during a peace orient, 
ed day such as Moratorium Wed- 

According to Mr. Castro, cue 
key problem is that of social ac- 
ceptance. More Important than 
superficial acceptance Is the ne- 
cessity for people to accept each 
other on a personal basis. Whose 
problem is this? In the United 
States there are many who are 
anxious to solve problems, but 
mainly in the detached form of 
money Instead of personally get- 
ting Involved. There is a definite 
color hang-up among Americans, 
when only the blond, blue-eyed 
Chlcanos seem to be able to 
make it into politics and society, 
that is, if their name doesn't 
happen to be Lopez. 

The question of who is to blame 
was asked by the speaker. Why 
does a Chicano act the way he 
does when is is approached and 
offered help? There is definitely 
a lack of trust on both sides, and 
this distrust remains even with 
those Chlcanos who have "ar- 
rived" in life and who change 
their nationality from Mexican. 
American to "Basque" or "Spa. 
nish" as quickly as one changes 
hair color. As one of these for- 
tunate Chlcanos who has attained 
a position of trust In society, 
Mr. Castro realized that the only 
solution to this racial problem is 
the need to swallow false pride, 
and to become personally involv. 
ed now. 

New Theater 

For Now 

Drama enthusiasts moved their class, the Theory 
of Drama, to the Mark Taper Theater at the Los 
Angeles Music Center for a Sunday matinee. Dr. 
Labrenz, the professor, arranged for the group to 
be taken to the New Theater for Now productions. 

A series of ten plays were presented during the 
afternoon, many of which were new, not having 
attained significant recognition, though a few were 
of greater reputation. Israel Horowitz and Jules 
Feiff er were two more I well-known playwrights. 
Mostly one act plays were presented, but a few 
excerpts were also dramatized. 

The first dramatization was "The Stars and 
Stripes" by Leonard Melfic. This play incorporated 
techniques of participatory theater in which the 
actors directly relate to the audience. Following 
"Thoughts on the Instant of Greeting a Friend 
on the Street" by Jean Claude van leal Lie and 
Sharon Thie, "Punch and Judy in a Revenge Play" 
by Harvey Perr was presented. This oversized pup- 
pet show exemplified twisted relationships between 

The most Intense performance of the afternoon 
was "Rats" by Israel Horobetz in which the pro- 
blem of rats in the slums was brought to light 
as an important economic problem. 

Other plays presented were "Camera Obscura" 
by Robert Patrick, "Boats" by Adrienne Ken. 
nedy. "A3" by James Bridges. "June Moon" by 
Jack Larson, "Wandering" by Lanford Wilson, 
and excerpts from Jules Feiffer's play "God 


More trips to the theater are being planned by 
Dr. Labrenz to expose students to the professional 
dramatic world. The trips are open to all students 
and anyone Interested should contact the English 
office or Dr. Labrenz for more information.

United Nations 
Day Observed 

By Joel Davis and Frank Nausln 


Friday October 24, 1969, marks 
the 24th anniversary of the United 
Nations. Nearly a quarter of 
a century ago 50 nations signed 
the U.N. charter in San Fran. 
Cisco, and by doing so bound 
themselves to the fulfillment of 
the purposes and principles set 
forth in it. How effectively have 
those purposes and principles 
of the United Nation Charter 
been fulfilled in the last 
24 years? 

The first article of the char- 
ter set forth the purposes of the 
United Nations; among these are 
— "To maintain international 
peace and security; To develop 
friendly relations among nations 
based on respect for the princi. 
pie of equal rights and self-de. 
termination of peop/es; to achieve 
International co-operation 

in solving international prob- 
lems; To be a centre for har- 
monizing the actions of nations 
in the attainment of these ends." 

The signatory nations also 
bound themselves to the obser- 
vance of certain principles set 
forth in Article 2 of the Char- 
ter, including, "the sovereign 
equality of all its Members;" 
the settlement of "their inter- 
national disputes by peace, 
ful means;" "All members shall 
refrain in their international re- 
lations from the threat or use of 

Twenty- four years is a long 
time; much has happened in the 
field of international relations. 
Has the U.N. in this time, been 
able to fulfill its purposes as 
set forth in its charter? 

It has, but not to the extent 
that the signers originally hop- 

ed. Many large-scale armed con- 
flicts, often between member na- 
tions. have occured since 1945; 
and the right of self-determina- 
tion of peoples has often been 
thwarted by member nations. In 
other areas though the U.N. has 
been notably successful especial- 
ly in the areas of international 
co-operation on the problems of 
world hunger and disease. 
UNESCO and the World Health 
Organization have pioneered in 
these areas. 

But why has the U.N. been less 
than successful in the total ful. 
fillment of its purposes? Ironi- 
cally enough, it is because of 
the very principles set forth 
in Article 2. Article 2 states 
that no nation shall use force 
or threat of force in the settle- 
ment of international disputes. 
Few, if any, of the member na. 
tions have been able to resist 
the temptation to rattle rockets, 
or throw them at times. How. 
ever, the principle of national 
soverignlty combined with the 
lack of effective enforcement po. 
wer has served to hamper the 
U.N. most effectively of all. 

Despite these assuredly great 
deficiencies, however, the U.N. 
at 24, is not dead. It still serves 
as an effective "open forum" for 
world opinion; it stands as the 
world's greatest assertion that, 
as King Arthur says in The 

Once and Future King, "might 
does not make right," and in 
many places around the globe 
it is the only difference between 
starvation and food, disease and 

George Sharp Returns! 

Noted stage hypnotist and 
speaker George Sharp (B.S. Psy- 
chology) who has appeared at 
over 100 schools and received 
standing ovations at over 60 per 
cent, will be appearing at C.C 
cent, will be appearing at CLC 
Gym at 8:00 p.m. on Oct. 31 69. 

You are cordially invited to 
attend in order to evaluate the 
performance for your school. 
George Sharp's unique presenta- 
tion (lecture and show) of Hyp- 
nosis includes a sicientific ex- 
planation of the theory of Hyp. 
nosis (based on psychological 
principles of conditioning, inhi- 
bition, etc.), the relation of this 
hypersuggestive mental state to 
other natural mental states, and 

the practical application oi self 
hypnosis to studying, learning, 
improving school grades, etc. 
Characteristics of the hypnotic 
state are skillfully illustrated 
via one of the most tasteful, hi. 
larious and ever-changing series 
of hypnotic routines ever devised,

To Deans Gangsei and Heckerson: 

We are attempting to eliminate 
women's dormitory hours. We re- 
cognize that the need for such ac- 
tion is symptomatic of the deeper 
concern on the part of the stu- 
dents to create a healthy social 
atmosphere for the largely resi- 
dential campus. 

For the first time we are put. 
ting our resolve to act as a uni- 
fied student body to the test. Per- 
haps the nature of the student- 
administrator relationship may 
also become somewhat clearer 
to the students through our ac- 
tions and our attempts to com. 
municate our ideas to the entire 
campus community. Hence, this 

We are determined that our at- 
tempts at communication and 
change shall be constructive and 
positive expressions of our 
spirit and that they be understood. 
We invite you to join to our cause 
your positive contributions in the 
fervent hope that we can create, 
and shall create, a newer, better 
attitude among students at this 

We can show no higher expres. 
sion of our integrity and stead- 
fast devotion to insure the rights 
of students than to reaffirm that 
we are creative, sensitive indi- 
viduals with much to give as well 
as receive. To affirm less 

would be to deny all. 

That the world is not yet ready 
for us is no longer a sufficient 
reply to our efforts. Nor should 
it be accepted by you. 

Join us. Take the Initiativel

Committee for Initiative No. 1

Student Initiotive 

(Continued from page 1) 

Doctor Kallas has published his 
sixth book, A Layman's Introduc- 
tion to Christian Thought. The 
book goes into three Important 
subjects In the study of religion. 

First, It attempts to put before 
the layman the general truths 
of the Bible. 

Second, it discusses the dif. 
ferences between the different 
denominations — the beliefs em. 
phasized by each. 

Finally, it tries to show how 
some of the concepts came to 
focus in specific men. 

The book Is already on sale 
at the Book Store for $2.45. It 
is used for discussion groups in 
Doctor Kallas's Religion 101 
clases. The book is put out by 
the Westminster Press, a Pres- 
byterian publishing company.

thority to interpret and apply

CLC Peace 

through the fact that the nuclear 
war could occur without too much 
trouble or thought. The legacy of 
a thermo-nuclear war Is a com- 
plex state of fear and shock which 
can lead to permanent neurosis. 
Threat of lukemla, malnutrition, 
scurvy and a desolately recoupe- 
rating country made people scar- 
ed, apathetic, and profoundly le- 
thargic; hunger riots result from 
Indifference towards the law, and 
parents questioned whether they 
wanted their children to grow up 
with poison working in their 

The final plea made to the au- 
dience was that there is hope if 
we accept personal as well as 
national responsibility for pre- 
venting such a nuclear war from 

Following the film the packed 
auditorium remained silent as 
though expectantly waiting for 
answers to unspoken questions. 
After five minutes of roaring 
silence the crowd began to dis- 
perse and many acted out their 
answer to the Imminent atrocity 
of a Thermo-nuclear war by par- 
ticipating in the peace game. 

Following the movie, more pos. 
ters were painted by CLC, Moor, 
park, and Thousand Oaks High 
School students, while other stu. 
dents and community adults mill- 
ed around, talking and waiting. 
In looking closely at the posters 
there were a variety of messages. 
Some of the more prominent read: 
"War is good business, invest 
your son;" ''America has the best 
fed. best dressed, best educated 
corpses in the world;" and* Aim 
for peace, not men." Peace, being 
the central theme, was evident in 
" Pray for peace;" " Peace now," 
and "Work for peace." One of the 
most effective posters was one 
on which dozens of uniformed 
men's pictures appeared, cap- 
tioned by the phrase "This is 
the dead from one week." 

The March Begins 

By 1:15, all marchers had as- 
sembled on the lawn in front 
of Alpha Hall, and at the request 
of the organizers of the march, 
participators filed by two by two. 
A motley group of Thousand Oaks, 
High School, Moorpark, and CLC 
students joined by community 
adults, composed a line of 750 
extending for seven.tenths of a 
mile. The group marched down 
the middle of Moorpark Road and 
after the three mile trek to the 
Post Office to mail letters com- 
posed that morning, speakers 
were heard in the Village Square 
Shopping center. During the 
march, a few spectators watch- 
ed, some waving flags, some hold- 
ing signs similar to those of the 
marchers, and some joined the 
procession. Various derogatory 

Aqua lay.; it on the line. 

remarks such as "Look at all 
those slobs" were made by one 
group of adults. 

Several faculty members also 
marched, among which were 
President Olson, Dr. Moorefield, 
Mr. Taggert, Mr. Paris, and Pas- 
tor Swanson. Several participants 
upon being interviewed later, re- 
ported factors which detracted 
from the solemnity of the peace 
march. Dorothy Sattrum and Al- 
lison Montgomery, two CLC stu- 
dents, felt that the Thousand Oaks 
High School students lacked se- 
rious consideration towards the 
march, and that their chanting and 
running In the street ruined the 
mood for the college students. 
Also the clothes worn by some of 
the high school students were 
not suitable. Dorothy Sattrum 
remarked that two of the com- 
munity adults' signs were in- 
appropriate with die idea of a 
peace march. They were "Nixon 
is Rosemary's Baby" and "Sub- 
mit to Communism." 

An unidentified non-participant 
objected to the march as having 
been grossly misrepresented to 
the student body by the ASB 
President. Supposedly a purely 
morally oriented march was used 
to support political reasons. 

Speak For Peace 

The first speaker for the after- 
noon was President Olson, who 
stated that "die main thrust for 
this day came out of plans for a 
national Vietnam Moratorium 
Day for Peace. As is our right 
we have made our own plans for 
the day so we might discuss 
the basic issue of peace and 
war in our own terms and in 
our own way. This gathering is 
a part of our day at CLC. We 
claim the privilege of being our- 
selves and expressing ourselves 
. . . and not even of needing to 
agree with each other in all sides 
of this day for Peace because it 
is such an intense issue which 
has such very personal mean 
ings. We claim the privilege of 
believing that we have enough 
in common to bring us together 
and cause us to listen to each 
other and consider what we hear 
from each other." 

President Olson condoned the 
fact that those morally and ethi. 
cally concerned about war and 
peace carried out their feelings 
peacefully in the march. He rea- 
lized that we have added to the 
problems which have mounted 
up over the years and that we 
expect our elected leaders to 
solve the impossible. However, 
in order to activate and further 
the solving of problems con. 
cerning peace in Vietnam, we 
can march with soberness, thus 
voicing our opinions often lost 
through other channels. 

"When I am told that the pres- 
ent war is a matter of Christian, 
ity on one side and Communism 
on the other I can only hear it 
as an assertion, not a statement 
that has the ring of reality about 
it. You see, wrong ideas are not 
controlled and destroyed by force 
but by being overcome with a 
greater and more vigorous and 
more valid idea. To seek the end 
to this war is not to surrender 
to an attitude about man which 
Communism holds but to say that 
we are convinced there are other 
and more valid ways to join the 
contest for the minds and hearts 
of men. Our strength cannot fi- 
nally be the strength of arms but 
the quality of faith and dedica- 
tion and support of each other 
in justice and freedom." He fi- 
nished by saying that "a time of 
trouble is not a time for despair." 
Following his speech. Presi. 
dent Olson was given a standing 
ovation by the crowd. The next 
speaker. Mr. Davis, leader of 
the Conejo Peace Movement, 
made the point that Vietnam 
should decide the outcome of its 

own civil war, perhaps with the 
use of the United Nations as the 
mediator. How can we have a 
commitment with someone who 
idolizes Hitler, as the present 
Vice-President in South Vietnam 


Rev. Swanson, CLC Pastor, 
read parts of his letter to Presi. 
dent Nixon. Voicing a popular 
opinion, he said that "It is my 
purpose to keep alive the mo- 
mentum of the peace movement 
in such a way that it is a visible 
and vocal reminder of that which 
remains undone at the very top 
of the national agenda." He ad- 
vocated withdrawal of forces 
from Vietnam and increase of 
Vietnamese participation, and 
made a final plea to be given 
the ability "to love justice and 
our own country at one and the 
same time." 

The final speaker, Joe Acquah, 
CLC student, honestly and force- 
fully spoke for peace. 

"I, Joseph Acquah, citizen of 
the world address you: peaceful 
coexistance with each man is 
possible and should be the goal 
of each nation. Americans are a 
bunch of lazy ass people and it is 
for this reason, that the United 
States Government and People 
present such a poor Image of 
this "Great Democracy".. "Give 
the Power to the People." We 
want that our children should live 
in a much less tense, inhumane 
world as we have been forced to 

One remark made by a girl in 
the crowd was her gladness at 
President Olson's identifying 
himself with the students. 

The school bus and private 
cars returning to CLC were made 
available to the tired marchers 
after the speeches were finish- 

Open Forum 

At seven o'clock that evening 
a second showing of The War 
Game was presented in the gym 
. . . following the movie was 
an open forum held In the CUB 
under the leadership of Joe Ac 
quah. Beginning with the reading 
of short stories and protest poe- 
try, the floor was opened to all 
with something to say. 

Reactions to The War Game 
were heard and personal feel- 
ings about the day were related. 
Pastor Cain confessed that con. 
trary to his belief that the day 
would not be relevant, it turned 
out to be very much so. Dean 
Edmund said that he had work- 
ed with people working on the 
atomic bomb and had realized 
its destructiveness but was help- 
less to do anything about it. He 
expressed a definite need for 

One dramatic moment was the 
confrontation of the audience with 
a crippled ex.Marine who wanted 
to wipe out North Vietnam, Com- 
munist China and Moscow. Sym- 
pathy was felt for him by the au. 
dience when it was learned that 
he had lost a brother and a Viet- 
namese wife in Vietnam. Mr. 
Paris informed the group that 
a bill now in Congress which has 
a possibility of being passed, con- 
cerns treason in peacetime in the 
aiding or housing of an enemy'of 
the nation. He urged all present 
to write to their Congressmen in 
opposition of this bill. Jerry 
Rea said that war. since the be. 
ginning of history, has never sett- 
led anything. There has never 
been a military victory and we 
must revolutionize our thinking 
concerning war. The whole even- 
ing's discussion moved well with 
no one speaker dominating the 

At nine o'clock a communion 
for world peace was held in the 
gym and a day of quiet action 
was ended with quiet reflection.

Dear God: Why War? 

All I am saying — give peace 
a chance. 

Prior to last week's prepara- 
tions, the and . war movement 
across the nation, and the Mora- 
torlum specifically, gained an 
incredible amount of momentum. 
On Wednesday. September 24, 
Congressman Allard K. Lowen- 
stein (D.N.Y.) announced his sup- 
port for an Immediate withdraw- 
al from Vietnam. On Thursday, 
Senator Charles Goodell (R.N.Y.) 
a former moderate on Vietnam, 
announced the introduction of a 
bill (S-3000) that would give the 
administration 12 months to with- 
draw all troops. This bill pro. 
vldes that allmlnitaryappropria- 
tions to maintain our forces in 
Vietnam would be terminated by 
December 1, 1970. This is the 
hardest "peace position" yet to 
be introduced into Congress. 

That Friday afternoon Senator 
Fred Harris (D-Oklahoma), Dem. 
ocratlc Party Chairman, con- 
vened a meeting of Democratic 
Senators and Congressmen. The 
Saturday New York Times re- 
ported: "Out of the meeting came 
a decision by these Democrats 
to join cause with the nationwide 
student anti-war protest on Oc- 
tober 15 and to press In congress 
for resolutions calling for an end 
to the and a withdrawal of Amer. 
lean troops ..." 

While the Congressional pro- 
test group is small In numbers, 
its members are influential In 
the part's policy-making cir- 
cles. Among those present were 
Senator Edmund S. Muskle of 
Maine, the Vice. Presidential can. 
dldate last year; Senator Edward 
M. Kennedy of Massachusetts 
and Senator George S. McGovern 
of South Dakota. . . 

In the New York Times, Sun. 
day, September 28, appeared sev. 
eral endorsements of the Vietnam 
Moratorium. Of the more noted 
quotes were the following: "Once 
again the students of this nation 
will go to call for 
peace In Vietnam. This construc- 
tive effort to work for an end to 
this senseless war is truly a 
high form of patriotism." — 
Senator Charles Goodell. 

"The type of non. violent ac 
tlon which the Moratorium as- 
serts is not only highly com- 
mendable but also sorely need- 
ed." —Senator Mark O. Hatfield 

"The Vietnam Moratorium is 
the most significant demonstra- 
tion of opposition to the war in 
Vietnam since the primary re. 
suits of 1968. It is the only way 
that the people of the country can 
demonstrate a second judgment 
on the war in Vietnam to those 
who hold political power." — 
Senator Eugene J. McCarthy 

"I would hope that the Mora, 
torium observance will make 
clear to the Administration that 
in the continuance of this sense- 
less bloodshed lies the seed of 
national tragedy. It is an effort 
which merits the responsible par- 
ticipation of all Americans who 
are anxious to reverse a policy 
of military attrition and moral 
disaster." — Senator George 
S. McGovern 

"Let us all support the stu- 
dents who are trying to stop, 
by their Moratorium, this dis. 
astrous. costly and pointless 
war;" — Reinhold Nelbuhr. 

"Only public pressure for lm. ill persuade 

Nixon to end the war. The Viet. 
nam Moratorium will help build 
that pressure." — Benjamin 
Spock, M.D. 


Pester Lauiscr. marches PEACE. 

Student Leaders 

by Andy Carman 

We are responsible! We are 
adult! We have rights! This 
is our cry as a student body. 
But are we more likely cast, as 
college of blind sheep who 
will follow at the slightest 
promise of a little frosting 
on the cake? It sounds good 
so 'Why not' is the cry of the 
majority of the student body. 
Kow sad it is that a few 
'student leaders' speak for the 
ENTIRE student body. 

What am I talking about? 
The examples arc present in 
eve£y area of student activi- The first and most ob- 
vious example to be found is 
our mont recent 'peace' march. 

Students were presented with 
a Petition which called for 
Peace AND a DAY OFF from 
classes. Before looking any 
further, we voted, passed the 
resolution, and followed our 
STUDENT LEADERS down to the 

Thinking back on our activi- 
ties, what does the majority 
of the student body believe 
they were marching for? When 
asked they replied that they 
were marching for a moral 
concept of Peace throughout 
the world. In a way it is sad 

That they even now believe 
this. The march had at its base 
one and only one object-- 
a political march in opposi- 
tion to one man and his admin- 
istration opinion? and actions 
on how to accomplish that goal 
of Peace. Their moral march 
was in the eyes of their stu- 
dent leaders and the public 
press a political march from 
start to finish. 

My views are not important 
in relation to that issue.' 
The problem is this — This 
issue was not examined and 
questioned by the majority of 
the students. They looked 
forward to a day of no classes 
and a fun march to T.O. and 
because of this were misled on 
the vital issues at stake. 

Once again we followed blind- 
ly, sheep following the leader, 
not caring enough to question. 
If this is the fate of the 
student body, no langer can 
we cry that we are responsible 
and adult in our thinking. Of 
we can not know and question 
basic issues before we act, 
how can we claim we are res- 
ponsible? Only when we as a 
student body can start looking 
past the frosting on the cake 
can we claim we are responsible.

The Manhood Myth 

By Gera]d Rea 

What is the Manhood Myth? I see it as a distant echo bounding 
through the tunnels and sewers of previous civilizations finding 
its release in the mouths and pens of our contemporaries today. 

Be a manl 

Don't back off! 

Hit him back I 

Men don't cry! 

Sound familiar? Is it hard to even lightly consider the possibi- 
lity that advice such as the above could take on the proportions 
have given it, labelled as the Manhood Myth? 

In African Genesis Robert Ardrey blames man's seeming ina- 
bility to escape his killer instinct on his ancestors, the great killer 
apes of Africa who lived 750,000 years ago (Australopithecus afri* 
canus) and conquered other apes with their superior weapons. 
Ardery says, "And If all human history from that date has turned 
on the development of superior weapons, then it is for a very sound 
reason. It is for genetic necessity. We design and compete with our 
weapons as birds build distinctive nests." 

Ardrey believes that the creator and continuing force of society 
is not man but the weapon. However, I see the weapon not as the 
cause itself, but as the effect of a larerer cause, the Manhood Myth. 

The role of the unyielding, dominant, physical male was neces- 
sary in the days of the primates and prehistoric man but should 
have become obsolete with the advent of laws protecting members 
of a society. Instead, the ideal of primate masculinity has been 
carried along by tradition and obstinance through the pages of his. 
tory leaving a path of continual conflict. 

The grassy plains and rocky cliffs of our earth are littered 
with the memories of millions of bodies that fell because of some- 
one else proving their "manhood." A more contemporary note is 
the fact that some men and boys in America consider the opportu- 
nity presented by America's involvement in Vietnam as a chance 
to prove their "manhood" by fighting and dying for the fight against 
Communism! Many of our leaders ignore the plight of the dlscrimi- 
nated and impoverished wnlle sending our young flesh into an end- 
less cycle of war, war, and more war. When will it end? 

The need to "be a man" sinks its rusty clamp Into the minds 
of almost all modern men. This clamp Is composed of two halves; 
one, the genetic link (ever-weakening) which ties us by a bond of 
bestiality to our killer-ape ancestors; the second, a continuing ver- 
bal and visual bombardment of primate masculine ideology from 
parents, society, and other misguided men. Rare Indeed is the man 
who has been able to escape completely from this clamp. 

If you want to hear and see more graphic proof of the existence 
of the Manhood Myth today: try growing your hair long and listen to 
the comments of "the men;" back out of a fight and listen to the 
laughs of "the men;" study ballet and listen to what "the men" 
have to say about it; show excessive compassion for a wounded 
game animal and hear "the men" snicker; refuse to fight against 
your earthly brother in war and listen to "the men" call you a 
coward; cry over a tender moment and wait for the stares of "the 

In other words, be what a human should be; compassionate, caring, 
peaceful, and thoughtful. Try to emulate what Christ taught and 
watch yourself get crucified by the proponents of a tragic Myth that 
has carried mankind to the brink of disaster. Be a human, not a man!

ing service for all of those who 
hate to iron. Those in McAfee 
tired of doing their own ironing 
can call Ext. 279 and those in 
Mountclef can contact Spurs at 
Ext. 229 and 236. 

We'd like to thank you for 
enthusiastically buying donuts, 
and for those who have missed 
this Monday night snack, have 
your roommates buy several for 
you. In Alpha and Beta Halls 
they will be sold door to door 
and donuts will also be on sale 
in the Mountclef lounge at 9:30 
p.m. Don't forget — every Mon. 
day evening. 

Three new Spurs have been ac. 
cepted into the organization. We 
welcome Patricia Benton, Nancy 
Golden, and Karin Olson as new 
members of our group. 

Spurs have begun work on their 
service project at the Unfinished 
Symphony Ranch for Girls in 
Agoura. On the 9th of October, 
ten Spurs went out to the Ranch 
to meet the girls and to get ac 

quainted with them. We were 
taken around to the various ca. 
bins and soon we all dropped our 
masks reserved for meeting new 
people and a generally good rap- 
port was established. A second 
group made the short trip on the 
14th. We hope to be able to help 
these girls not only with 
homework but in talking out mu- 
tual problems and in discussing 
goals. We plan to invite several 
of the girls to the next football 
games on campus to show them 
what CLC life is like. 

Over the week-end of the 24-25, 
representatives from CLC Spurs 
will attend the annual Spur con. 
vention held this fall at UCLA. 
Next year the responsibility for 
such a convention will be in our 
hands, and one of the objectives 
of our representatives will be 
to report back concerning its 
organization, as well as to par. 
tlcipate in the excitement of meet- 
ing other people and of coming in 
contact with other ideas.

Interface '69 

Dr. Alvin E. Walz, chairman 
of the chemistry department at 
California Lutheran College, 
Thousand Oaks, was recently one 
of twenty eight participants from 
Arizona and California colleges 
and universities in "OPERATION 
INTERFACE '69" which was 
sponsored by Industrial Asso- 
ciates of the American Chemi- 
cal Society. The group spent four 
days meeting with industrial 
chemists and learning of the op- 
portunities in chemistry for 
young people at the bachelor, 
masters and doctoral levels. 

The prime intent of the con- 
ference was to establish better 
communications between Indus- 
try and the academic so that 
more students may learn of the 
opportunities available to them. 

Based in Long Beach, the par. 
ticlpants had tours and discus,

Sparkling Defense 
Leads To Victory 

The Kingsmen took their 12th 
game in a row, 23-6 over the La 
Verne Leopards. This brings 

CLC's season record to 4-0. 
La Verne scored first on a nine 
yard pass in the second quarter. 
It was the first touchdown scored 
against the Kingsmen this year. 
Only minutes before, the Kings- 
men defense made a brilliant 
goal line stand. The Leopards 
had the ball, first and goal on 
the one yard line. The ball never 
got any closer. 

The Kingsmen evened the score 
with 1:32 left in the half. Senior 
Half Back Ron Sc ho miner scor- 
ed on a two yard run, topping off 
an 80 yard drive. In that drive, 
Schommer completed the longest 
Kingsmen run of the year, 40 

In the fourth quarter the Kings- 
men shattered the Leopard de- 
fense, scoring two T.D.'s and a 
field goal. Senior Joe Stouch ran 
seven yards for the Klngsmen's 
second score. A few minutes la- 
ter, Junior Quarter Back AlJones 
connected with Senior Brian Je- 
ter for a 20 yard pass-run score. 
Then with 32 seconds left, Sopho- 
more John Bossard kicked a 31 
yard field goal. 

The Kingsmen defense spark- 
led. Three La Verne passes were 
intercepted, and a punt blocked. 
John Bossard intercepted a Leo- 
pard pass which set up the Kings- 
men's first score. 

Next week the Kingsmen will 
meet Simon Frasier University 
at Vancouver.

Sam Cvijanovich 

Last week, Sophomore Line, 
backer Sam Cvijanovich was nam. 
ed Southern California College 
Player of the Week, after a bril- 
liant game against Whittier Col- 
lege. This was another honor 
for Sam to add to his collection. 

Sam graduated from Santa 
Clara High School in Oxnard. 
In his Junior and Senior years 
he was named All-Frontier 
League (2A) in Football, Bas- 
ketball and Baseball. In 1968, 
Sam was named to the All-CIF 
Southern second team in '3A* 
Football, and the first team in 
*2A' Basketball. Last year he 
was team captain of the Knaves, 
and Freshman MVP. 

Sam has scored over 175 de- 
fense points this year, and he is 
sure to triple that number at 
the rate he is going. He has 
sparked the Kingsmen defense 
in their past two games, with an 
Interception and breaking up 
many plays. 

Sam Cvijanovich is one of the 
reasons why the Kingsmen are 
"Number 1|"

Haley Intrigues 

by Becki Frock 

On Wednesday night, Oct. 22, CLC students and 
non-students alike were held spell-bound by the 
fascinating presentation of Alex Haley, author of 
the world-renowned "The Autobiography of Mal- 
colm X." Haley was the first speaker of the 196S- 
70 speaker series sponsored by the Academic Af- 
fairs Commission. 

Haley discussed three aspects of his career. He 
spoke about his beginnings as an author, his work 
on "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" and, most 
extensively, about his soon-to-be-released book. 

His new book traces Haley's family lineage back 
nine generations to the African nation of Gambia. 
He began his research simply out of personal 
interest and it eventually developed into a deep 
passion for knowledge. Haley believes that this 

book is not merely the genealogy of his own family, 
but that it is the "saga of a people.'* 

Interspersed with the intriguing story of his an- 
cestors and the lives they led, Haley spoke of his 
beginnings as a writer. In his comfortable, con- 
versational manner of speaking, he related that 
while serving as a cook in the U.S. Coast Guard 
during World War II he gained the reputation as 
a great letter-writer. The results were many love 
letters written to girls in the ports his buddies 
had visited. 

Eight years and many magazine articles later the 
result of Haley's meager beginnings appeared as 
"The Autobiography of Malcolm X." 

Haley shared with his audience some of the

major aspects of his work with the late Malcolm X. 
He spoke of the long hours and the hard work in- 
volved in the writing of the autobiography. The 
death of Malcolm X two weeks after completion 
of the book led Haley to write a deeply inspired

"Academic education demands 
a free environment, an environ- 
ment which is currently not at 
CLC." Dave Lewis, ASB Vice 
President, spoke these words 
to about sixty students assembled 
at the open forum held in the 
cub on Wed. Oct. 22, to discuss 
the hours situation. 

During the forum, Davis Lewis, 
Miss Candy Maitland, A WS Presi- 
dent, and Phil Reitan,ASBPresl- 
dent, answered questions con- 
cerning Thursday's action intend- 
ed to abolish women's hours. 

Conflicts arising from this ac- 
tion with the administration was 
one major point. Reitan stated Dr. 
Raymond Olson, President of 
CLC, was willing to talk about 
the problem, but Reitan also stat- 
ed that the President's actions 
already showed that his decision 
had been made. An example of 
such administrative action can 
be seen in Dean Lyle Gangsei's 
policy for off-campus students 
which Reitan termed "en loco 
parentis revisited." This policy 
demands that off-campus stu- 
dents abide by the same rules 

and standards that students on. 
campus must follows. 

Miss Maitland mentioned that 
the administration insists that 
channels are available for discus- 
sion that students have not yet 
tried. She mentioned letters sent 
to parents last year requesting 
opinions on hours having prov. 
ed a failure and no criteriafor any 
constructive action. When AWS 
desired to try other methods, 
Dr. Olson was said to have dis- 
couraged action. Thus, in the 
spring, channels are exhausted, 
but by fall a whole new set of 
channels are open which must 
be waded through in order to 
get anything done. 

Lewis added that the admin- 
i st ration insists hours isapolicy 
that they must set. Administra- 
tors claim the school is the pro- 
perty of the supporters and the 
administration must protect this 
property. In response, Lewis said 
that his protection of property 
doesnt extend over human rights. 
The administration is interpre- 
ting the role of Christian moral-

eight states are expected to 
attend. They will have the oppor. 
tunity to talk about Christ and 
to share Christian fellowship. 

Speakers will talk on the 
Christian experience, what it is 
and how it relates to the social 
and spiritual needs of the modern 
world. "The Sonlight" and other 
folk groups will perform. 

Each person will participate 
in two elective courses and a 
small discussion group, which 
will meet seven times during the 
Congress. Two elective courses 
offered are "Faith — Intellec 
tual Suicide?" and "Christian 
Living — Adolescence and Apron 

There will be some time set 
aside to visit Disneyland. 

The fee is $33.50, which co- 
vers registration, hotel and meal 
expenses (excluding breakfast). 
Registration forms are available

Alive publication.

Sharp Eyes Route The Winner 

The newly formed Rallye Committee ofCLC is sponsor- 
ing a road rallye on Sunday, November 2. The rallye will 
start at 3:00 p.m. in the parking lot by the Administra- 
tion building. The cost — $1.00. 

Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to own 
a sports car to participate in this type of rallye. 

At the start, entrants will be given instructions which 

Car Rallye Refurns To CLC 

they must follow in order to successfully complete the 
rallye. In this type of rallye, there is no time factor: This 
is not a race! 

Participants will be successful only if they have sharp 
eyes for locating different clues along the route. 

The typical team is generally made upof one driver and 

one navigator, but as many as fifteen have, on occation, 
appeared ready to run with their *Healey Sprite!' The 
cost, remember, is by the carload, not by the head. 
Prizes will be given for best Male Participant, best 
Female Participant, best Faculty or Administration Par- 
ticipant and best Over-all Participant.

"The hopes of the world must rest 
on the habit of forming opinions 
on evidence rather than on passion. " 


A most outstanding contemporary philo- 
sopher, Bertrand Russell appears to have 
centered-in on a current issue on our cam- 
pus. Student Initiative Number One: Women's 
Hours, has been called many different 
things. Among the names attributed to 
it have been: A new freedom; a watered 
student protest; another student right; 
and another thorn in the administrations 

Supposedly the students are all behind 
this first student initiative. However, 
less that a majority of the students voted 
upon this issue. Although, it can be said 
that those who voted were only ten per cent 
short of a unanimous vote, a majority of 
the entire Associated Student Body was not 
really properly represented. 

Now time has recorded, that a committee 
is being organized to investigate what all 
the implications are of Student Initiative 
Number One: Women's Hours. 

The actual long range implications of the 
initiative appears to be centered around 
moral education at C.L.C. The administration 
tion has taken on the role of parent (as d 
defined "en loco parentis") and, therefore, 
they seem appropriately capable of handling 
our moral education. 

The students, on the other hand, in an 
effort to actualize their feelings on the 
matter, have now attempted to initiate their 
own intrepretation of the Student Parent 
(which could be defined as the Student "en 
locos parentis") . This would imply that the 
students feel capable of presenting an appro- 
priate student moral education program. 

Now the question arises: Upon what jus- 
tification does either group — The Adiini- 
stration or the Students — claim thay 
should educate our morals ? Is it the 
prerogative of the administration because 
of their lengthy existence with this and 
other institutions of "Higher Learning": 
is it their own moral education we are, 
or are not, benefitting from: Have the 
Regents, Convocators, or Faculty influenced 
this decision of moral education: or is it 
assumed by the students, that this is part- 
of-the-deal when we decided to be educated 
at C.L.C. ? Is it proper for the student 
to challenge his superiority over his tea- 
cher ? Who is the student and who is the 
teacher ? The initiative title was STUDENT 
Initiative Number One; so if we are the 
student, then who is the teacher ? 

I've written this editorial in the effort 
that both sides of this present issue take 
credit for what has been taking place: and 
in the hope that it is understood that we 
don't know all the answers. My main point 
here, is that both sides should attempt to 
evaluate this great issue upon solid factual 
evidence and not simply upon any one's 
passions. We all need to take the time to 
think out what is going on on this campus: 
we all need to make use of the "grand pre- 
rogative of mind" that another philosopher 
has defined. 

"Tho man a thinking being is define* 
Few use the grand prerogative of mind; 
How few think justly, of the thinking few ! 
How many never think — who think they do

Seek Joint 

President Raymond M. Olson, 
Saturday, Oct. 25, issued a 
communication to students in re- 
gard to the regulations concern, 
ing living in CLC housing and 
the CLC community in general. 

The communication came as a 
result of a conference between 
President Olson and ASB Presi- 
dent Phil Reitan. The purpose 
of the conference was to seek a 
common step to take toward re- 
solving issues raised by Student 
Initiative No. 1: Women's Hours. 

The agreed upon the follow- 

An ad hoc Adjjdicatory Com- 

mission will be named out of mu-

and other persons considered 
able to make a contribution to 
the work of the Commission. 
The Primary Charge to the 
Commission will be to resolve is-

Alex Haley 

(Continued from i>agc 1) 

The completion of "The Autobiography of Mai- 
colm X" gave Haley an opportunity to devote most of 
his time and energy to the research connected with 
the discovery of his ancestors. 

It was only after much work that he entertained 
the idea of a book detailing the history of his family. 
The book would not only be the personal history of 
one family but also the history of all black Ameri- 
cans m the U.S. Mr. Haley's new book will be the 
ancestoral pride of the many millions of black peo- 
pie who were separated, by force, from their 
families and their cultures. 

Throughout his presentation Mr. Haley was re- 
laxed but also intense. His deep interest and love 
of his subject captivated the audience. He took the 
audience to Gambia as it was in the year 17G7. 

Haley is a determined man exalted by his work. 
He claims that, although talent is always helpful, 
a writer's greatest asset is his determination to 
work, to fail and to continue working. Mr. Haley's 
presentation was an example of that attitude and 
of the exciting fulfillment and success achieved 
through such an altitude 

nance and dormitory hours. 

A Secondary Charge will be to 
recommend ways and means for 
resolving other questions related 
to the primary issue of college 

Until the Commission lias re- 
solved its Primary Charge the 
rules pertaining to dormitory 
hours are suspended, upon the 
understanding that the spirit of 
those regulations will be honor- 
ed throughout this period. 

They further agreed that this 
solution is not to be seen as a 
victory for any of us, but as a 
step taken in mutual trust to seek 
a serious solution to a serious

ity and imposing it on the student 
body. The administration, Lewis 
added, has no right to do this — 
each student should have his own 
understanding of the Christian 
ethic and abide by it. 

Another problem mentioned at 
the forum was the question of 
how the abolishment of hours 
would affect college support from 
donations. During the summer, 
Candy Maitland sent letters to 
the churches supporting the col- 
lege; most responded that if hours 
were abolished, they would with- 
draw their support. This support 
is about 20 per cent of the college 
operating funds. 

Reitan quoted a similar in- 
cident occuring at Augustana Col- 
lege over dancing, which in the 
final outcome, the churches did 
not withdraw their support as they 
had threatened. Lewis stressed 
that the CLC student body cannot 
base all its decisions on what the 
supporters of the college want, 
but rather upon what the student 
body is willing to support. 

Students Needed 
Curriculum Planning 

CLC students face the responsibility of deciding 
the types of classes they want, the specific areas 
of study, and the respective goals. 

Dr. Murley told English majors at a get-together 
on Tuesday that the faculty members are encoura- 
glng students to work on curriculum committees. 
Several students expressed interest in classes 
which would teach English majors techniques of 
technical writing, an area which Is currently 
in great demand. Journalism was another area 
where interest was expressed. 

Each department has this type of a program. 
All that is needed in order to get a class on the CLC 
campus is enough interest. If there is some area 
of study desired at CLC, share suggestions with 
others and get the respective faculty committee 
working on a class. 






Homecoming 1969 

To Be 

A Living Legend 

Bevans At Homecoming 


The theme of Homecoming 
weekend 19G9 at CLC is "Liv. 
ing Legend." The theme follows 
two parts of CLC's history. First, 
there is the actual school his- 
tory. In one way CLC is a living 
legend in Itself because of its 
early accreditation and its rapid 
growth. This year celebrates the 
fifth year re-union of the first 
complete four year class — 1964. 
The year 1970 marks the 10th an- 
niversary of CLC as a college. 
The second legendary theme is 
that of the Vikings. The Vikings, 
being Scandinavians, can be con- 
sidered as our pre-Lutheran an- 
cestors. This idea steers away 
from the perennial theme of the 
Medieval King and centers in- 
stead, on the Viking King. 

The presentation of this theme 
depends on the main Homecoming 
Committee and various sub-corn- 
mittees. The Homecoming Com- 
mittee consists of the Chairman, 
Cheryl Raught, the vice • chair- 
man Mike O'Donnell, Treasurer 
Sue Hurd, Secretary Orlee Hoi.

senior classes, the school com- 
missioners, and an advisory com- 
mittee of two faculty members, 
one administrator and one devel- 
opment office official. 

There are several sub-commit- 
tees and each one, with its chair- 
man, covers a specific aspect of 

The Coronation Committee, 
with chairman Mary Dversdall, 
has planned the Queen's Co- 
ronation on Friday night, the 14th. 

Halftime activities for the foot- 
ball game are under the auspices 
of the Pep Commission. A pos- 
sible presentation of an out-of- 
town precision drill team is un- 
der consideration. 

The planning of the Homecom- 
ing Ball comes under the chair- 
manship of Gay Falde. The bids 
are $3.50 and must be presented 
at the door. The ball is semi- 

formal with the exception of the 
queen and her court. 

On Sunday morning there will 
be a campus Communion Serv ice. 
Tim Weir and the Religflfc Af- 
fairs Commission are in cnarge 
of this aspect of Homecoming. 
Pastor Swanson will speak and 
the Alumni Choir will sing. 

The annual receptions for the 
Convocators and the Queen are 
under the leadership of Diane 
Short and the members on her 

The activities planned for 
Saturday morning are under the 
control of Don Rygg and the Cir- 
cle K. A stilt race and a piggy- 
back race are among the planned 
activities. A picnic In the out- 
door stage has been planned for 
Saturday before the game. It will 
cost a dollar for those people not 
on board. 

Behind these committees are 
three very important planning 
committees. These committees 
are the Publicity Committee, the *. 
Entertainment Committee anaihe 
Decoration Committee. It is up to 
these committees to make sure 
that the activities are well an. 
nounced, well-executed and en- 
joyed by the students. 

The publicity chairmen are 
Judy Wipf and JoAnn Bonner. 
They made the Viking that stands 
in the cafeteria and the gold hel- 
mets that have been on the scene 
for the last couple of weeks. It 
is up to this committee to pub- 
licize each activity and to get 
the students interested in them. 

The Entertainment Committee, 
headed by Mike O'Donnell, is pre- 
senting to the student body, Mr. 
David Bevans. (See — Bevans at 
Homecoming article) He is an ex. 
cellent impressionist and will 
have a special act for our cam. 
pus. It is said that Dr. Olson 
and the deans are included in his

repertoire. The Jimmy Hender- 
son Orchestra has been provided 
for the Homecoming Ball. 

The Campus Decoration Com- 
mittee is important because it 
helps to promote enthusiasm and 
interest on campus. Chairmen 
Sandi Madison and Naomi Rygh 
have an exciting transformation 

of the cafeteria planned. They 
are also the judges for the dorm 
decoration contest. 

Considering the detailed plan- 
ning and the variety of ideas 
that have gone into this year's 
homecoming weekend, it should 
proved to be an exciting and me- 
morable Homecoming 1969. 

For those that don't already 
know, there are many exciting 
and greatly entertaining events 
planned for Friday night, Novem- 
ber 14. Starting at 7:UU win oe 
the beautiful and spectacular cor- 
onation of the queen, and pro- 
mises to be more breathtaking 
than any of the most gallant af- 
fairs of ancient times. But the 
big news is yet to come. Di- 
rectly following the coronation 
will be the most entertaining 
hour ever to be enjoyed at CLC. 

Appearing at 8:00 will be the 
"Mariachis Los Camperos," 
eight of the livliest Spanish musi- 
cians ever to come out of Las 
Vegas — you'll be dancing in 
your seats for surel! 

Then, at 8:45, the tears of 
laughter will roll as Homecom- 
ing proudly presents Mr. Dave 
Bevans. Having appeared with 
Joey Bishop, Steve Allen, the 
Beverly Hillbillies, and at the 
Dunes in Las Vegas to name a 
few, Be van promises to bring 
down the house with laughter 
as he performs his crazy im- 
pressions, limericks, singingand 
other comedy-filled antics. 

The night is hardly over as 
the show will be followed by 
the most enjoyable Queen's re- 
ception (where everyone gets a 
chance to kiss the new queen; 
in the CUB at 9:20, and at 10:30 
a very spirit and skit-filled pep 
rally (word has it that Al Jones 
is at it again) in the gym. 

November 14, 1969 promises to 
have the most entertaining and 
"loaded with fun" night in the 
history of Cal Lu.

science fiction writer, is schedul- 
ed to speak at California Lutheran 
College on "The Space Age as

Perhaps best known for his 
work "Fahrenheit 451" which 
was recently made into a movie, 
Bradbury has written more than 
300 stories and 14 books of novels, 
stories, and plays. 

He was a regular contributor 
to the Alfred Hitchcock series 
when it appeared on television and 
also wrote the screenplay for the 
production of Moby Dick by John 

His book "The Martian Chroni-

Louis Barrault in February 1967. 

Also popular among his writ- 
ings have been "The Wonderful 
Ice Cream Suit," "The Illustra- 
ted Man" and "Something Wicked 
This Way Comes." 

Bradbury was born in 1920 in 
waukegan, Illinois. He began 
writing at the age of 12 and sold 
his first story when lie was 19 
years old. He is a frequent con- 
tributor to such varied maga-

Remember your fairy tales? 
"The Brave Little Tailor" is the 
one from "Grimm's Fairy 
Tales" about the tailor who hits 
seven at a blow (flies, that is)

Monday, November 3, marks 
the first formal in-season work- 
out for the CLC wrestling team. 
Some of the wrestlers have been 
involved in preseason workouts 
for the past two weeks, but Mon- 
day has been declared as the 
first full workout of the year. 

The CLC wrestlers are start- 
ing the year with the intention of 
keeping the title of NAIA Dis- 
trict Three Champions, which 
they have won for the past three 
years, in spite of ever stronger 
competition. In fact, many of the 
wrestlers are beginning to think 
about the NAIA National Tourna- 
ment, held this year at Superior, 
Wisconsin. There are some 
wrestlers here at CLC who can, 
this year, be place winners in 
that tournament. 

The following wrestlers have 
announced intentions of competi- 
tion for CLC this year: Raul 
Rubalacava, Tom Lybrook, 
Charles La Gamma, Tim Pink- 
ney, Jeff Quentmeyer, Dalton So- 
wers, Adrian Lee, Mike Maurer, 
Stephen Smith, Teodoro Lazaga, 
Butch Standifer, Rich Kelly, Ray 
Shadid, Tom Ingvoldstad, Richard 
Welch, Mike CDonnell, Rich 
Noel, and Jim Bauer. These ath- 
letes will form the core of the 
team, with any other wrestlers 
in the school being invited to con. 
tact Coaches Owens and Cantor. 
There are some weight classes 
in which the team is weak, nota- 
bly 118. The key to a successful 
wrestling season this year is for 
all the wrestlers in the school to 
turn out and help CLC remain 
the best NAIA college in the dis- 

The first tests for the team 
will be an informal scrimmage 
with Pierce College Nov. 12 and a 
more formal scrimmage with Cy- 
press College Nov. 18. The first 
dual match scheduled is with Cal 
State Fullerton, at CLC, Dec. 2

Sings To 

A five day trip to Canada to 
attend a music seminar was quite 
an experience for Wayne Fabert, 
a fifth year student at CLC. 
Fabert was chosen from the 
Kingsmen Choir at the end of 
last year to attend the 9th An- 
nual Church Music Seminar spon- 
sored by the Lutheran Brother- 
hood Fraternal Insurance So- 
ciety. Held from October 23-26, 
in Waterloo-Kitchener at Water, 
loo Lutheran University, music 
students from thirty-two Lu- 
theran colleges in North Ameri- 
ca and Canada assembled to study 
and sing some of the newest 
church music that has been pub- 

The seminar began in 1959, or- 
ganized by Dr. Theodore Hoelty- 
Nickel, who is a professor at 
Valparaiso. Each year the semi- 
nar invites a guest director; this 
year the seminar was fortunate 
to work with Dr. Edwin Niever- 
gelt from Zurich, Switzerland, 
who also is the Director of the 
Church Music Institute there in 

After several days of intense 
rehearsals, the forty-voiced 
choir presented performances at 
St. Peter's Lutheran Church and 
St. Matthew's Lutheran Church. 
The later performance was re- 
corded on video-tape for a later 
broadcasting and a record was 
made, one of which each mem- 
ber of the seminar will receive 
in the spring. 

While the seminar was resting 
between rehearsals, the group 
took sightseeing tours into the 
then snow-covered forests of Ca- 
nada and into some of the Amish 
country. Thursday night the grou^ 
attended an organ recital, fea- 
turing the music of various Ca- 
nadian composers. It was also the 
University's Homecoming that 
weekend, where the school was 
defeated by the Guelph Gryphons. 
To brighten the defeat, the music 
of the Canadian group, the Su- 
gar Shop, was featured at the 
dance that night. 

The purpose of the Seminar, 
as Fabert reviewed his trip, 
was to get a cohesive feeling be- 
tween students of many varied 
backgrounds by means of their 
common interest, music. Dr. Ne- 
bergelt expressed his sincere de- 
sire for their seminar to expand 
and extend to people all over the 



UCLA Hosts 
Spurs Convention 

On the 24th of October, ten 
CLC Spurs left by car to at- 
tend an annual Spurs conven- 
tion held this year at UCLA. 
Accompanied by Senior Advisor 
Miss Prouty and Junior Advi- 
sor Melinda Millerman, the CLC 
representatives met with Girls 
from UCSB, Long Beach, and 
UCLA. San Diego State College, 
also a member of Region V, was 
not represented. 

The convention actually began 
in the morning of Saturday the 
25th, at which time Paula Kapp, 
Regional Director of Spurs, in- 
troduced the officers and the va- 
rioi^topics of discussion. The 
foufptopics were relevancy of 
Spurs, uniforms, obligations to 
national Spurs, and the Spurs' 
national project. After the dis- 
cussion groups adjourned at noon, 
pictures were taken and with the 
following free time, prospective 
UCLAers toured the dorms. The 

convention ended with dinner and 
a guest speaker. The topic was 
"Project Concern."" It is a non- 
political, non-profit, non-re- 
ligious organization designed to 
help people to help themselves. 
Food and medical supplies are 
sent to South Vietnam and Mexl- 
co. In addition, money is donated 
by each Spur chapter that has cho- 
sen to take on the project. CLC 
Spurs, however, has chosen to 
help at the Unfinished Symphony 
Ranch for Girls in Agoura. 

Following the speaker, songs 
were sung, and the convention 
was closed by Paula Kapp. 

Comments about the conven. 
tion were varied, the most im- 
portant criticism being its lack 
of organization. This is Important 
to CLC Spurs who will host the 
annual convention next year. In 
spite of a lack of spirit on the 
part of the hosts this year, re- 
presentatives to the convention 
felt that a sense of unity was 
established and that the conven. 
tion was worthwhile.

Exchange Students 

A Step Towards Understanding 

The number of foreign students 
at CLC has been gradually in- 
creasing over the past few years, 
and this year there are several 
foreign students from various 
countries. The Echo will present 
a series of articles concerning 
these students. 

Worku Wondimu was born in 
Ethiopia in the town of Ambo 
about seventy miles west of the 
capital city, Addis Ababa, to 
which his family moved when he 
was nine years old. Son of afar, 
mer, he is one of nine children. 

In Addis Ababa, he attended Su- 
dan Interior Mission .Elementary 
School, and continued his high 
school education at a commercial 
school where Worku studied se- 
cretarial skills, office adminis- 
tration, and some accounting. Af. 
ter graduating in July of 1963, he 
began working for the Lutheran 
World Federation Broadcasting 
Service where he acted as Trans- 
lator-Secretary and Medium 
Wave Department Secretary. 

Worku also worked as Executive 
Secretary for the Ethiopian Gov- 
ernment Ministry of Land Re- 
form and Administration, besides 
being Administrative Assistant 
for the United States Peace Corps 
Mission inEthiopia. Bet ween 1964 
and 1967 he attended Haile Selas- 
sie I University extension in Ad- 
dis Ababa. 

In June of 1968 Worku came to 
the United States and studied at 
Monterey Peninsula Junior Col- 
lege for one semester before en- 
rolling at CLC for the 1969 spring 
quarter. He is now a senior at 
CLC and is majoring in Business ' 

When asked why he wanted to 
come to the United States, Worku 
replied that he has always been 
curious about the people of other 
countries, about living among 
them and learning about their 
ways of life and social institu- 
tions. He admires the American 
people as being very energetic 
and hard-working. He saM that 


he had no problem adjusting to 
the American way of life because 
"the people are very friendly 
and helpful." 

Besides taking five classes 
this year, Worku also works part 
time in the Accounting Depart- 
ment at Burroughs. 

Worku noted the growth of 
the foreign student community 
at CLC and said that it was a good 
sign of the college's reputation 
both at home as well as interna- 
tionally to have such a com- 
munity. He further stated that 
the foreign students play a par- 
ticular role in fostering interna- 
tional understanding and they can 
make their part of the world bet- 
ter understood by all with whom 
they come in contact. He likes 
CLC for its homey atmosphere 
and the excellent relationships 
and close contacts that exist be- 
tween the students and faculty. 

In his spare time, Worku likes 
to travel, read books on interna- 
tional politics, and to participate 
in such sports as soccer and bas- 

On Nov. 12 the CLC 
Latin American Studies 
Program will journey to 
USC to hear the Rev. 
Blase Bonpane lecture 
on Guerrilla Warfare in 
Guatemala. He is a 
former missionary who 
was expelled by the 
govt, of Guatemala. He. 
presently teaches at 
UCLA. Students will be 
leaving CLC at 8am 
and returning at 2pm. 
Anyone interested in 
attending please contact 
Mr. Philip Paris.

The Birds 

On Friday October 24,theilrst 
of five presentations of the play 
"The Birds" by Aristophanes 
was performed in the Little Thea* 
tre under the directorship of Dr. 
Adams. It was first producedin 
414 B. C. at the Great Dionysia 
in Greece and won second prize 
in the contest. 

The play concerns Pisthe- 
tairus, "Hopeful" (Gary Odom) 
and Euelpides, "Blarney" (Rick 
Rullman), two Athenian men of 
relatively well-to-do families who 
become dissatisfied with the so- 
ciety of taxes, lawyers, prophets, 
and government officials, and try 
to escape from these numerous 
bores by going to live with the 
birds. With the help of the bird 
leader Epops (Gary Adams), for- 
merly a human, and the gullible 
birds, the two Athenians direct 
the building of the Kingdom of the 
Birds in the sky, Cloud Cuckoo 
Land. However, the basis of the 
city prevents it from remaining 
peaceful for very long. By self 
appointing themselves the bridge 
between the gods and man, and 
by extracting toll charges from 
both sides, the birds first earn 
enough wrath from the gods to 
generate a war, and following a 
peaceful settlement in which Pis- 
thetairus becomes king, Cloud 
Cuckoo Land is invaded by ten 
thousand human applicants in 
search of a Utopia, accompanied 
by the inevitable tax inspector, 
city planner, a prophet, a poet, 
and a lawyer. 

"The Birds" was chosen by the 
faculty who selected several 
plays out of fifty to one hundred 
possibilities, to comprise a 
balanced season of entertain- 
ment. Several years ago, Dr. 
Adams helped produce <r The 
Birds" in a school in Ohio, and 
also because a classical play has 
not been enacted at CLC recent- 
ly, this play was chosen. 

This version of the play has 
been drastically cut and re-adapt- 
ed from two translations, but the 
original satiric spirit has care- 
fully been preserved. Satire, the 
highest form of comedy, was 
greatly enjoyed by Greek audien- 
ces, who were able to laugh 
at themselves. Although this slap, 
stick is meant mainly to enter- 
tain, and can be taken at face 
value, past and current applica- 
tions can be made. A universa- 
lity of themes makes it possible 
to relate "The Birds" to present 
world situations, because schol- 
ars have thought it was written at 
a time when the Greeks were 
fighting a useless war without 
any sign from the gods. Although 
it is contemporary, this play is 
not specifically topical and is not 
particularly profound. It is play- 
ed by actors who do not pretend 
to be anything but actors, and in 
the original versions, actors in- 
tentionally forgot lines and props, 
giving as their excuse "But what 
do you expect? I'm only an ac- 

This comedy was the first of 
the two departmental major 
shows, the second being "Dark 
of the Moon" to be presented 
later in the year. 

Dear Editor, 

As one of the instigators of 
the food Boycott, I have several 
reasons for writing this letter. 
First of all, I feel the student 
body has the right to know that 
Mr. E. S. Flynn and the College 
have parted company. The new 
head of the Food Service is Mr. 
John Reeder, who is working 
directly lor tne ozaoo Food Com- 
pany. He is one of the hardest 
working individuals I have en- 
countered and he is quite open 
to suggestion. 

Another reason for writing is 
to inform the student body of the 
forming of the Food Service Com- 
mittee , made up solely of students 
from the College. In the past, 
there have been food service 
committees also, but this one 
differs in the powers that we 
have obtained. We have full in- 
spection rights of the kitchen at 
anytime by any member of the 
committee. We have a copy of the 
contract which we have examined. 
We have noted that there is no 
quality control clause in the con- 
tract, so the committee is as- 
suming that role itself. 

Finally, we have been granted 
a great deal of power in making 
suggestions of change for the con- 
tract and if worse comes to 
worse, we can move for removal 

of the Szabo Food Service in 
place of a new one. According 
to the contract, all we have to 
do is give 30 days notice. But 
we do not feel this will be neces- 
sary because of the confidence 
we have in Mr. Reeder. He is 
not satisfied with the sanitary 
conditions, the extreme wait for 
food, the wet trays and the hair 
in the food, and in each of these 
cases, steps have been taken, 
with the cooperation of the com- 
mittee, to alleviate the problem 
as soon as possible. 

I have personally Inspected the 
kitchen both during and previous 
to meal time and have found it 
more sanitary than most kitchens 
I have seen. 

The third reason for writing 
is to address myself to the letter 
which appeared in this column 
last week, authored by a Mr. 
Tracy Harbur. Instead of tak- 
ing a sneaky look around the 
corner, Tracy, why don't you ask 
Mr. Reeder to let you look. As 
I have already stated, myself 
and members of my committee 
have inspected the kitchen very 
closely and found the results to 
be impressive. Compared to be- 
fore the boycott, the place is 
virtually Immaculate. Whenltold 
Mr. Reeder of the letter, he 
merely threw up his hands in 
disgust and said "Why don't they 
give me a chance." I agree with 
him whole heartedly. So Tracy, 
next time, try and be a little 
more fair in your appraisals be- 
fore shooting off your mouthl

On October 24th at 1:00 p.m., 
seven brave, adventurous souls 
set out in Coach Shoup's station 
wagon to drive the 1,320 miles to 
Vancouver, Canada, for our foot- 
ball game with Simon-Fraser. 
Andy Garman led the escapade, 
accompanied by his harem of 
six — Diane Creighton, Barbara 
Merrill, Stella Wilkins, Kay 
Strawder, Barbara McQueen, and 
Linda Roush — all going for rea- 
sons varying from a love of foot- 
ball and or a football player to a 
love of adventure. 

We spent approximately 24 
hours en route including gas and 
food stops. You can be sure that 
we were all VERY WELL ac 
quainted by the time we reach- 
ed Vancouver! 

The beautiful scenery and our 
undying enthusiasm kept us from 
going stark raving mad! A full 
moon accompanied us through 
Northern California and Oregon 
so that we were able to enjoy some 
of the beauty of the snow-cover- 
ed mountains and tall, dark pines. 
We watched the sun rise just be- 
fore we got to Tumwater, Wash, 
ington (you know, "it's the wa- 
ter"...), which reminded us of a 
little New England village in the 
fall. The trees were all decked 
out in red, orange, brown, and 
gold — much to the excitement of 
those of us who had never wit- 
nessed autumn outside of Sou- 
thern California. Weatherwise we 
had no real problems — only 

We were completely exhausted 
and bedraggled after 23 hours 
of constant driving, but when we 
reached the Canadian border a 
transformation took place! 
Everyone perked up when we ex- 
plained to the customs official 
that Awesome was a mascot and 
only fired blanks! The hour's 
drive into Vancouver was fill- 
ed with cheering and anticlpa- 

Key To 

Dear Editor, 

Our Homecoming committee 
sparkles with unimaginative 
thought and a lack of originality. 
First, for a record breaking fifth 
year in a row we have the Jim- 
my Henderson Orchestra. Again 
we are paying $2,000 for the 
same group who plays less than 
two thirds of the dance. They're 
breaks are so long they should 
provide playing cards to keep the 
frustrated dancers awake. I am 
not stating that this orchestra 
is not adequate for a formal 
dance; but really, five years in 
a row? 

Second, with two weeks re- 
maining before this festive event, 
all the fans can look forward to 
as half-time entertainment is 100 
yards of white striped grass; not 
exactly a breathtaking spectacle. 

Apparently the CLC philosophy 
that stagnation is the key to suc- 
cess has pervaded the thoughts 
of our homecoming committee.

Under the excellent guidance of 
Stella and Linda, we navigated 
the car right through town, to 
the Eldorado Motel where the 
team was resting before the 
"kill" (like the calm before the 
storm). We made our arrival 
known, hunted up Coach Shoup, 
and found a motel room for the 

After a very short rest, and 
looking like new people, the 7 of 
us, plus 3 others including the 
raffle winner Judy Kinsman, set 
out to find a place to eat before 
the game, with a quick tour of Van- 
couver first. Images remain of 
Stanley Park, a full moon rising 
over the bay, hills covered with 
twinkling lights, brisk cold clear 
air, bare trees, neon lights, shop 
windows, fur coats . . . 

After having dinner in a res- 
taurant ressembling an English 
tavern, we arrived at the game. 
Our side of the huge stadium was 
almost as full as the opposite 
side and there is no doubt that 
we were louder — what with Awe- 
some, Andy Garman, and two of 
the bounciest, cheeriest cheer 
leaders around — Judy Kinsman 
and Barb Merrill! We were as 
"jacked" as the football players. 

It was a great game with the 
guys putting their everything into 
it, inspite of the freezing cold 

and the muddy, slippery field. 
They deserve a lot of praise 
for the game they played with the 
final score of 25-0. And at that 
moment when we, the fans, were 
all standing around the locker en- 
trance, chanting "it's all over, 
hey" as the team hustled by and 
one of the players smiled up at 
us and said, "Thanks for com- 
ing, you guys!" like he really 
meant it; at that moment we were 
truly glad we had come. All the 
tiredness was gone, there was no 
thought of the long drive back, 
just a sort of glowing contentment 
. . . jubilant happiness. . . a feel- 
ing of pride for our college and 
for our team . . .("we came, we 
saw, we conquered!") 

After the game there was par- 
tying and celebrating with a samp- 
ling of Canada's "best" beer, 
a welcomed night of blissful 
sleep, and then the long drive 
home . . . Carl Clark taking the 
place of Stella Wilkins who flew 
back with her husband, the rain 
and traffic, a 21st birthday cele- 
bration in Auburn at dawn for 
Carl . . . then back to CLC where 
reality and work were awaiting 
us. There are many memories, 
and each one of us would have 
something different to add, but 
we all agree that our wild esca- 
pade was worth it — climaxed 
by that moment of oneness with 
our victorious football team.

Promises Creative Challenge 

Ray Bradbury emphasizes the H-bomb will not 
let Man destroy himself. 

Ray Bradbury, the famous science fiction 
author, was well received in the gym last Sun- 
day night. He challenged those who listened; 
he challenged them to find something to love 
and to work for it. He promised the space 
age would be a creative challenge. 

Bradbury, known the world over for his short 
stories, novels, and screenplays, adressed an 
audience of students from nearby high schools, 
local residents, and community leaders, as well 
as CLC students. He took a refreshing ap. 
proach to the world's problems. As he put it: "I 
came to depress you with good news." 

He admonished everyone to do what thev loved, 

and to love what they're doing; that learning 
should be fun and the quest for knowledge exhil. 

He also predicted a little of the future; only 
he maintained that anyone can see the future 
if they are only aware of what's going on around 
them now. 

Ray Bradbury, author of "Farenheit 451" and 
"The Illustrated Man", was the second fascinat. 
ing speaker of the current Concert • Lecture 
series. More are scheduled in upcoming weeks 
and will be a valuable facet of the college ex. 

International Community 

The pretty Hong Man Lee, 
known to her friends as May, 
is the youngest member of CLC's 
international community. She was 
born in Hong Kong seventeen 
years ago, and has become fami. 
liar with life in several coun- 
tries and can be called a true 
international student. 

May's father is a Sanitary En- 
gineer in Hong Kong and her 
mother is very actively operat- 
ing a cakeshop and a cooking 
school, sometimes exhibiting her 

Chinese culinary skills on tele- 
vision. She has an older brother 
attending Cambridge University 
in England and a younger brother 
who is living at home. 

In Hong Kong, May completed 
Diocesan Girls' School. She 
chose to enroll at Headington 
Girls' School in Oxford, Eng. 
land, partly because her brother 
was there, and, according to her 
father's plans, to toughen her up 
and to give her an all-around 


Drive Begins 

In the Coffee Shop next week, November 17-21, CLC students 
and friends will have the opportunity to help the world's children 
through participation in the UNICEF Christmas Card Drive. 
Donations from the purchase of UNICEF cards and calendars 
will benefit more than 800 million children in the developing 
countries, in addition to establishing habits of peaceful cooper- 
i ation and mutual assistance. 

Lacking solutions to all the overwhelming problems the world 
faces, must not deter us from making an honest attempt to alter 
the conditions of misery that so many of the world's children 
suffer from. Your contributions through UNICEF will aid in 
the purchase of equipment and supplies, medical services, dis- 
ease control, nutrition, social services, education and vocation, 
al training. With your help, UNICEF can continue to fulfill its 
aim ". . . to spread a table, decked with all the good things that 
Nature provides, for all the children of the world." 

President Kennedy addressing the UN's General Assembly 
said, "Never before has man had such capacity to control his 
own environment — to end thirst and hunger — to conquer poverty 
and disease — to banish illiteracy and massive human misery. 
We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind 
in the history of the world — or to make it the last." These 
times are indeed critical, won't you help? Can you afford not to? 
Support UNICEF. 

During the past summer, May 
travelled back to Hong Kong, 
passing through Japan and Maui 
before arriving in San Francisco 
and finally Los Angeles. She has 
been in the United States since 

May found out about CLC 
through her uncle, Dr. Edward 
C. Tseng, who is Chairman of 
the Political Science Department 
at CLC. 

Although undecided on her ma- 
jor, she is interested in psycho, 
logy and also finds French to be 
her easiest subject. 

Music is something which May 
enjoys very much, and she plays 
all kinds of music on her guitar. 
During her stay in England, she 
did promotion work for Hong 
Kong recording artists at EMI 
(Electrical Musical Industries) 
and plans to do more of the same 
while she is in the United States. 
Drumming intrigues her, and one 
of her dreams is to own her own 
set of drums. May is also inter, 
ested in poetry, especially poe- 
try written by Liverpool poets, 
(who are under 23, blues singers 
and failed sociology students) 
Laurie Lee, D.H. Lawrence, and 
Boris Pasternak.

Initiative No. 1 

Issues concerning college goverance raised by the passage of 
Student Initiative No. 1 are now being examined and discussed by 
the newly.formed College Governace Committee- 

The committee, created by mutual agreement of College Presi- 
dent Raymond Olson, ASB President Phil Reltan, and the ASB 
Senate, will function as an advisory group to the students, faculty, 
and administration and will seek relevant solutions to current 
campus problems. 

Committee membersldp consists of representatives from the ad- 
ministration, faculty and students. At-large and ex-officio mem- 
bers have floor privileges but no voting rights. Students have the 
largest representation, because, according to ASB President 
Phil Reitan, ". . . students are the most governed and therefore

Computers Tied 
To Cal-Tech 

The computer tie in to Cal Tech 
which we have been expecting for 
some time arrived on the sixth. 
It is located in that remote cor- 
ner of our campus known as room 
F-7. You can see it by going 
in through the door on the east 
end of the building, and walking 
in through the first door to your 
left. When you see it, you will 
be shocked! Instead of all kinds 
of equipment difficult for the 
average mind to understand, you 
will find two electric typewriters 
and a cabinet. 

Using the computer is even 
simpler than the system looks. 
The electric typewriters are the 
only devices which you have to 
worry about. If you have a prob- 

lem that you want to work, all you 
do is type it on one line of 
your data sheet. Then you push 
the return button, and the com- 
puter will answer it to the best 
of its ability. If the problem 
can't be fit on one line, vou can 
use a smaller phrase or symbol 
to define a part of the problem. 
The symbols can be fit on one 
line, and it will have the same 
effect as the problem that 
couldn't fit. 

In addition to problems of math 
and theoretical science the com- 
puter can also handle problems 
in political science and social 
science. By giving it the proper 
data, you can accurately compute 
information of a statistical na- 

Ski Film Debut 

"THIS IS SKIING" playing at the CLC Gym on Sunday evening, 
Nov. 23, brings to the screen a 99-minute ski view of powder 
snow and sunshine. Blizards and national championship racers. 
France and Alaska and music and fun mostly. 

Warren Miller directs the activities of his own film pro- 
duction-distribution-promotion company in the unlikely town of 
Hermosa Beach, California. Here, away from the pressure hang- 
ups of Hollywood, Warren's unique film production unit creates 
off beat entertaining and fascinating films. Having produced 
over one hundred ski films including theatrical features and 
network television series, the dean of ski film producers has 
conferred on his company several unique assets: Photographic 
experience; camera unit mobility; a wide range of technical 
capabilities; knowledge and enthusiasm for skiing; a strong 
desire to tell it like it is and to entertain; plus the materials 
to work with. 

During the winter filming season, Warren Miller Productions 
fields three strong, small mobile camera crews. Often each unit 
consists of one man filming in a documentary manner. The 
first unit is filmed and directed by Warren Miller, who draws 
from twenty years experience as a skier and movie maker. 
It is customary for Warren to assign himself the most critical 
or difficult sequences. In addition, Warren has two photographers, 
with the same drive and desire to film and entertain, Don Brolin 
and Rod Allin, who are trained in this unique and effective 
filming technique. Between the three of them, they have spent 
37 years solving location problems without the aid of a big crew 
and a dozen gaffers. It's a real experience to watch any of the 
three of them going down a hill, camera in hand, filming world's 

champion skiers in action. See it all at the CLC Gym on

A site, used by the local In- 
dians several hundred years ago, 

our socib-anthropology Depart, 
ment's Dr. Maxwell and his field 
archeology class. The site was 
used by the Chumash Indians for 
their gathering of nuts and ber- 
ries while they were in season. 
Because of this, it has been est- 
ablished that the site was only 
a seasonal camp and not a year- 
round one. The Chumash Indians 
were a coastal tribe, generally 
not exceeding a few hundred mem- 

Found at the site were parts 
of bowls, shell beads, shell art- 
ifacts, arrow-heads (projectile 


points) bone tools and some food 
remains. '<One of the reasons 
we are digging this site," says 
Dr. Maxwell, "is to find out if 
the inhabitants of the later per- 
iods (300-400 years ago) are 
basically the same as the earlier 
peoples (600-700 years ago), and 
what they used for food." 

The diggers are using hand 
trowels, sifters, brushes, and 
other hand tools; anything larger 
will break up the remains. 

NOTICE: It is a misdemeanor 
to disturb Indian sites without 
proper authorization. However, 
anyone interested in doing some 
work, or even just looking on 
should contact Dr. Maxwell at 
ext. 176 for details. 

A pretty skiier makes her run down the hills at Sun Valley, Idaho. 
All of this and more are featured in Warren Miller's nev; film "THIS

23, 1969.

What Is Wrestling 


CLC Hosts Runners 

By Coach Owens 

Wrestling, as done in college, 
is not what you see on televi- 
sion. If you expect to see a 
lot of eye-gouging, biting, etc., 
as you do on T.V., you will be 
disappointed. If, however, you 
expect to see some of the fast- 
est moving, exciting action ever, 
you will be quite pleased. In- 
stead of a test of who is the 
best actor, you will see a test 
of who is the best wrestler, with 
such things as wrestling knowl- 
edge, speed, strength, condition, 
ing, and intelligence being among 
the more important aspects. One 
other thing that is more important 
than the previous will also be 
In obvious presence — desire. 
All good atheletes have a certain 
amount of this important ingredi- 
ent, but I believe that a wrestler 
must have more than any other 

Wrestling is actually the old 
story of one man pitted against 
the other. In college wrestling, 
there are two scores that are 
important — the individual match 
scores and the team scrores. 
There are ten individual matches 

which make up the team score. 
The points earned by the individ- 
ual are counted up for the team 
score. The individual earns team 
points by defeating his opponent, 
either by decision or by pin. 
The win by decision advances 
the team score by three (3) 
points, while the win by pin is 
worth five (5) points. Thus it is 
very important that the individ- 
ual wrestlers work for pins. 
Because of this type of scoring, 
it is obvious that all men on the 
team are equally important. This 
is in direct contrast to many 
sports, such as football, where 
the emphasis is on the big man, 
and someone that weighs less than 
150 pounds is not really expected 
to do too much. In fact, the small- 
er wrestlers are usually more 
exciting to watch because they 
are faster. When you come to 
watch the first wrestling match, 
watch carefully or you might 
just see a purple and gold blur 
instead of the grunting and groan- 
ing that you might expect to see. 
No matter what happens, you will 
see some of the best athletes 
from CLC competing and giving 
their best for the team and for 
their school.

A world record holder will

100 athletes Saturday in the NAIA 
District III Cross Country Cham- 
pionships at California Lutheran 

Chuck Smead of WestmontCol- 
lege, world record holder in 
the junior marathon, will lead 
runners from 15 schools in com- 
petition for the Southern Calif- 
ornia NAIA laurels. 

Cal Lutheran Cross Country 
Coach and meet coordinator, Dr. 
Curt Nelson, is looking forward 
to an outstanding event. "There 
will be some fine runners here 
this weekend. It should be a great 

meet," he said. 

The favored Westmont team 
may face a strong challenge from 
Cal Western. The Westerners are 
led by Kenth Andersson, a mem- 
ber of the Swedish national track 

Biola, Occidental andRedlands 
also have strong teams and will 
challenge ior tne tiue. utner 
schools involved are: Azusa- 
Pacific, Cal Lutheran, Cal Tech, 
Chapman, and Claremont. Also: 
Fresno-Pacific, La Verne, Pasa- 
dena, Pomona, and Whittier. 

The five-mile course will start 
and finish at Cal Lutheran's North 
Field. Time of the event is 11:00 

First In Fifteen 

Pre-game activities at full swing. 

With the *help' of a wet field 
and eight fumbles by the Kings- 
men, the team from Cal Western 
went to a three-way tie for the 
NAIA district 111 title by beating 
CLC 49 to 0. There were ten 
total fumbles and fifteen total 
penalites, of which more than 
half were on the Kingsmen. 

For the first quarter, the 
Kingsmen won the toss and re- 
ceived the kickoff. Right from 
the first, the fact that the wet 
field would play a deciding role 
was apparent as several times 
runners would slip and fall for 
no reason other than the depth 
of water on the field. With 9:01 

left in the quarter, Cal Western 
made the first TD to make the 
score 7-0. When Cal Western 
kicked off, Burties (25) almost 
made it into clean running room 
but was brouhgt down by the last 
•defensive man. Later, on a 
fumble by CLC, the Westerners 
recovered it and went on a touch- 
down drive to make it 14-0 with 
5:16 to go. After the kickoff, the 
Kingsmen went to the Westerners 
20 yard line but lost the ball 
on a fumble and the quarter 
ended with the score 14-0 in 
favor of Cal Western. 

During the second quarter, 
there was hard hitting as CLC 
tried to score, but the Western- 

ers made two TD's within 12 sec 
onds on two fumbles by the Kings- 
men which brought the score to 
28-0. After the kick, CLC went 
to the Westerner's 35 yard line, 
but lost the ball again on yet 
another fumble which allowed 
Cal Western to drive to another 
TD to make the score at the 
half 35-0 in favor of the West- 

After the half-time entertain, 
ment, provided bytheSimi Valley 
High School marching band and 
drill team, the Kingsmen kicked 
off but couldn't hold the rampa- 
ging enemy as 52 seconds later, 
the Cal Western team scored 
once more to make it 42-0. Hard 

hitting, good efforts, two fumbles, 
and three penalties later, the 
Westerners scored yet another 
time to bring the score up to a 
comfortable 49-0 lead. 

The fourth quarter was a last- 
ditch stand by the Kingsmen to 
keep from having any more 
scores made against them. In 
it were seen some of the more 
nicely executed plays of the game: 
a double-reverse run by Cal West- 
ern, a six yard jump pass from 
Thomas Turk (10) to Carl Clark 
(89), and a run by Joe Stouch 
(24) which was just about worth 
a touch-down, only the referee 
said he had stepped out-of-bounds, 
and the ball was placed on the 10 

yard-line of Cal Western. Brian 
Jeter (29) carried the ball to the 
7 yard-line, but CLC lost it on 
an incomplete pass, and Cal West- 
ern just hung onto the ball to 
run out the clock. 

This was the first loss the 
Kingsmen liad had for fifteen 
games, and it moved Cal West- 
em into a three-way tie with 
Redlands and CLC for the NAIA 
district 111 championship title, 
which will be decided sometime 
in the future. The Kingsmen now 
have a 52-19 won-lost record, 
which is still nothing to be asha- 
med of, but it won't be easy in 
Coach Shoup's practices for the 
next week!

CLC gets his man 

CLC Faces Pomona 

The California Lutheran Col- 
lege Kingsmen will try to get 
back to their winning waysSatur- 
day against Pomona. The Home- 
coming game time is 1:30 p.m. 

The Kingsmen, now 6-1 on the 
year after losing to Cal Western 
49-0 last week, face a young but 
determined Pomona team. Sage- 
hen Coach Walt Ambord feels 
that his team has come a long 
way. "... We have the poten- 
tial to beat anybody we play if 
we have a top game." 

The Sagehens are young (they 
list only five seniors as regulars, 
and will start eight freshmen 
on defense), but they do have 
potential — particularly in the 
passing game. Quarterbacks Rick 
Miller and Bill Joost lead the 
number 15 passing offense in the 
NAIA. They have completed 89 
of 204 passes for 1246 yards, 
an average of over 200 yards a 
game. End John Anderson is the 
leading pass receiver with 34 

receptions for 525 yards and 
three touchdowns. 

The Pomona ground game has 
not been as impressive, so the 
Kingsmen secondary of John Bos- 
sard at safety, and Arnold Allen 
and Bob Wilklns at halfback can 
expect that the Sagehens will 
put the ball in the air early and 
often. Linebackers Rick Andrade, 
Sam Cvijanovich, and Gary 
Echols, who have been the back- 
bone of the rugged CLC defense, 
will also have their work cut out 
for them on pass defense. 

Last week Cal Western scored 
49 points to end Cal Lutheran's 
14 game winning streak. But the 
Kingsmen did maintain their fine 
record in rushing defense, allow- 
ing only 477 yards in seven 
games for a 68.1yards-per-game 
average. It was All-American 
quarterback candidate Wayne 
Clark's passing for three touch- 
down's that led the Westerners 
to their fifth straight win. 

Pomona comes to town follow- 
ing a 47-21 loss to an improving 
Whittier team, which lost to the 
Kingsmen 10-0 early in the sea- 
son. The Sagehens, 2-5 on the 
year, have also lost to La Verne 
14-0 and Redlands 49-27. Cal 
Lutheran defeated La Verne 23-6 
and Redlands 13-3. 

CLC Coach Bob Shoup feels 
that his team should be ready 

for the Homecoming game with 
Pomona. "Some of our alumni 
will remember that our series 
record with Pomona is 3-4. We 
will be out to even that score." 
More important, the Kingsmen 
will be out to return to their 
winning ways. 

Following the Pomona game, 
Cal Lutheran will host Concordia 
(Nebraska) in the season finale.

Please take time to read the two letters 
to the editor. They involve a problem pre- 
sent on this campus in many forms. To say 
and preach one philosophy, aad then turn a- 
round and demonstrate another, is not, 
by anv definition of the word, being con- 

When we elect our student government 
officials under a democratic process, it 
would appear to be implicitly understood 
that we would intend to rally our resour- 
ces in support of their efforts. 

Yet when members of a society do not 
question the direction and program of the 
society, then the elite few can determine 
all of the executions of the society. 

If we, as students, do not more open- 
ly criticize our student government, then 
how will they know what we want them to 
do for us? It is in the like manner that 
we, as Americans, criticize our American 
government, especially with regard to the 
war in Vietnam. 

We must also understand that there are 
two kinds of criticism — good and bad -- 
or, constructive and destructive. Too many 
times, somebody is displeased with something 
but can not offer something better. Perhaps, 
if we took time to meditate and analyse our 
problems; and then ask for God's guidance, 
this religious institution might witness a 
student awakening. 

The key woud here is integrity. And the 
key question is: Are we practicing being 
consistent without hypocrisy or sham? 

It is in this light that the article, 
"Obscene Little Rascal", was written. 
Does the college have integrity, an in- 
tegrity seperate from those people re- 
sponsible for running the college? 

Look around -- look at your classes, 
your student government , your school . 
Take time now to sit quietly by yourself 
and meditate on your situation at Califor- 
nia Lutheran College.

Senate Adds 


Dear Editor: 

My first "experience" with the Senate of C.L.C. 
occurred two weeks ago at the Oct. 30th Regular 
Meeting. I also experienced the meeting held 
on Nov. 6th and was startled to see that at both 
meetings not one student was present! Does 
this mean that no one at C.L.C. cares how the 
student government is being run? Do you, as 
students, elect A.S.B. Officers and Senators to run 
your campus strictly on the premise that they 
know what's best for you, and that you don't need 
to do anything but vote them into office? Do you 
know how your $25,000 A.S.B. Dues are being 
spent? Do you know what legislation has been 
accomplished on Student Initiative 1? 

If you don't know what's happening — get with it! 
Don't push the burdens of running a student gov- 
ernment off on a few people; get in there your, 
self and find out what's involved in running our 
campus. Know what's going on! 

Let's start seeing some student interest around 
C.L.C! After all, it's only what you do — or don't 
do — that makes this campus what it is. 

The next meeting is this Thursday, Nov. 13th 
at 9 P.M. in K-l. I assure you that you'll be sur- 
prised at not only what goes on at a Senate Meeting, 
but how the meeting itself is being run! Personally, 
I found it to be one of the most humorous events 
I've attended this Fall. 

Al Hubbard 

Little Rascals 

we would not only not be friends but probably 
bitter enemies, especially after I put a rope around 
his neck and pulled on it. These films show that 
whether in real life or in a play, Black children 
are to be treated however the whites want to treat 
them. This is reminiscent of the plantation owner- 
slave relations of past years. 

I was also insulted by the depiction of each and 
every Black child in the films as the stereotype 
"af raid-of-the-dark, dumb, dumb, poor colored boy" 
who will some day grow up to be a Stepin-Fetchit 
on the Shirley Temple movies. Then he won't 
have a whole gang of white kids to tell him what 
to do but a little five year old girl. 

I resent the exhibition of these films at this 
school, as it is an insult to my pride and in- 
tegrity as a Black person. If Avant Unity wished 
to show them so that a discussion of the racist 
elements would follow, I would have no objections. 
But as entertainment film, it Is obscene!! Once 
before, the Black students at this school were 
insulted when these same movies were shown as 
"entertainment" for the Black and Mexican. 
American children who visited for a day. Even 
then, the young children had enough sense to walk 
out of the Little Theatre and refuse to view them. 
Perhaps, they should be attending CLC and let the 
rest of you should go back to elementary school.

Ray Bradbury, the hydrogen bomb 

teacher of Christianity. This was 

he presented in his talk Sunday, 

Dear Editor: 

It has been said that CLC has progressed a great 
deal as far as race relations are concerned. To- 
night at the showing of the "Little Rascals" series 
the Black students at this college were able to see 
what this progress has meant. And it has meant 
literally nothing! When I was a child, my parents 
felt these movies were obscene and thus would not 
allow my brothers and I to view them. Even today 
several universities are studying these films for 
their obscenity both as examples of racial stereo- 
types and also for racist elements. But here at 
CLC, they are being shown for their entertain. 
ment value. Movies such as these only serve to 
further the old beliefs and stereotypes which have 
given various groups an excuse to subjugate poor 
and uneducated Blacks. 

The racist elements are all through the entire 
movie and yet how many people have even questioned 
their message. Just think, how many Black kids 
in the movies have parents? From what several 
people have told me, only one has a mother and 
she works for one of the white kids parents. That 
is totally untrue and unrealistic. It is also un- 
realistic that middle class kids are friends with 
lower class and apparently orphaned Black kids. 
Also it is unrealistic to think that in a case such 
as this where the smaller and younger white kids 
completely control the larger and older Black 
kids that the Blacks will remain in the group for 
long. It is also apparent that if a so-called friend 
puts a noose around my neck in order to insure 
that he would not get lost in a cave and then later 
pulls on the rope to insure that I was still there, 

According to 
is the greatest 
one of the ideas 
November 9. 

Bradbury suggests that man enjoys killing and 
would like to have large wars, but that the hydro- 
gen bomb produces too great a threat to allow 
that type of activity any longer. As a result of 
this threat, man has had to find other outlets 
for his destructive tendency. 

Left with small wars such as Vietnam, man has 
begun to use automobiles as one of his most im- 
portant weapons. Compared with the number of 
people killed in automobile accidents during the 
same time period, the number of American deaths 
in Vietnam is insignificant. Ray Bradbury does 
not drive, he has never learned to drive. He 
suggests that instead of burning draft cards, we 
whould turn in our drivers licenses. He also 
predicts that the automobile will be outlawed in 
the near future. 

Bradbury says that man is going into outer 
space becuase of a desire to live forever and that 
through space travel man will be able to fulfill 
this desire in the widespread continuation of the 
race. He also says that the adventures of space 
can be a substitute for war. Ray Bradbury states 
that we "must fuse a single race of man" and 
that this can be done through our efforts in space. 

He has an optimistic outlook. He thinks that 
while we will do everything wrong the first time, 
we will do everything right the next time. He also 
thinks that it is impossible to crush the human 

Ray Bradbury also said, "It is easy to predict 
the future." He feels that what is important is not 
the prediction of the future but how we mold the

an excellent performance. The 
staging was very well managed 
and the music which provided an 
extra flair of entertainment to 
the play was also very good. Be. 
cause of the length of the play, 
which lasted a little under three 
hours, parts of the dialogue were 
cut from the original script, but 
this didn't harm the effect of 
the presentation.

Bruce L. Copley 

Copley Earns 

Copley, son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Dwight P. Copley of 6220 Stow 
Canyon Road, Goleta, Calif., 
has been commissioned a 
second lieutenant in the U.S. 
Air Force upon graduation from 
Officers Training School (OTS) 
at Lackland AFB. Tex. 

A 1965 graduate of Buena 
High School, Ventura, Calif., 
the lieutenant received hisB.A. 
degree in 1969 from California 
Lutheran College. 

Lieutenant Copley, selected 
for OTS through competitive ex- 
amination, is being assigned to 
Reese AFB, Tex., for pilot 


For Alumni 

John McCune, 25, of River- 
side, Calif., who received the 
B.A. with honors as a member 
of California Lutheran Col. 
lege's first graduating class 
of 1964 has been hired to fill 
the post of assistant to the 
president at Moorhead State 
College, Minnesota. 

The son of a retired U.S. 
Air Force squadron comman- 
der, McCune graduated from 
Riverside High School, then en. 
rolled at the new California 
Lutheran College at Thousand 
Oaks with a double major in 
English and political science 
where he was a student in the 
English class of Dr. Roland 
Dille, who is now the presi- 
dent of Moorhead State. 

Continuing his higher educa- 

tion, McCune took post-graduate 
work for a year at George Wash- 
inton University at Wash., 
D.C., with the intent of enter- 
ing the diplomatic corps, but 
changed his mind, returning 
home to spend a year earning 
his teaching credential at Calif- 
ornia State College of Los An- 
geles. He taught English in high 
school before entering the U.S. 
Army where he was trained 
originally as a data processing 
specialist, but was wounded in 
Vietnam during the first nine 
months of active service. He 
was returned to the U.S., spend- 
ing the rest of his two-year 
duty tour as secretary to the 
commander of an artillery bri- 
gade staioned at the Presidio 
in San Francisco, Hq. for the 
Sixth Army. 



ever, to the present Student 
Body, who so graciously have 
invited us back we are not too 
well known. Therefore, the 
reason for this article is to 
hopefully introduce you, the 
Student Body, to us the Alumni. 
It would be useless to list the 
approximately 2,000 names of 
the alumni nor do I care to 
outline our divergent philoso- 
phies on life since that would 
take volumes, not just a news- 
paper article. Perhaps the only 
item I can pass on to you is 
what the alumni are doing for 
a livelihood. First, we are now 
spread over forty of the fifty 
states and several foreign coun- 
tries to include South Vietnam, 
unfortunately. The alumni of 
CLC have found a wide variety 
of employment and for some of 
us a variety of unemployment. 
When leaving CLC there are 
several roads to choose from: 

1) further academic pursuits, 

2) Military service, 3) home- 
maker, and or 4) a profession. 
We have representatives on all 
four roads plus a few on side 

We have compiled a partial 
listing of those professions and 
pursuits which were noted on a 
questionaire recently sent to 
all alumni. Many alumni have 
obtained a Master's Degree with 
several striving for their Ph.D 
in their respective fields. We 
have alumni in the Army, Navy, 
Air Force, Marines and the 
Peace Corps. Others keep busy 
teaching school, coaching at hie- 
tic teams and even one who is 
the Assistant to the President 
of Moorhead State Teacher's 
College in Minnesota. Others 
include Accountants (C.P.A.), 
Management, Medical Techni- 
clans, Lawyers, Dentists, Pas- 
tors and Youth Workers. We 
also have one actress, one pro- 
fessional musician (owner- 
partner of his own record com- 

pany) and one self-employed 

I realize this does little to 
make you familiar with the 
Alumni but I do sincerely hope 
that during this busy Home- 
coming Weekend you take the 
opportunity to talk to some of 
us who are here visiting your 
campus. An excellent oppor- 
tunity to meet with us would be 
the Student-Alumni Picnic on 
Saturday, 11:30 - 12:30 p.m. 
I am sure you will find many 
of us with questions to ask of . 
you who are nowattendingCLC. 
We won't be hard to recognize, 
the men have short hair, if 
any, and a good start on a pot 
belly, and the women have the 
longer skirts with lots of young, 
screaming kids running around. 

Thank you Associated Student 
Body of Cal Lutheran, for ask- 
ing us back and we hope to talk 
to many of you before the week- 
end is over.

CLC Group 


November Moratorium 


A group headed by ASB Pres- 
ident Phil Reitan, English Pro- 
fessor Michael Taggart, and Pas- 
tor Gerald Swanson participated 
in the midnight to midnight read* 
ing of the Vietnam War Dead 
last Friday and Saturday at the 
Ventura County Courthouse. 
Members of the group took turns 
reading the list of American 
victims of the Vietnam War from 
a candle-lit lectern in the steps 
of the Courthouse from midnight 
to 4 A.M. Saturday morning. 

At midnight Friday the stu- 
dents present joined hands in a 
circle and sang "Give Peace a 
Chance." Then Steve Rosemary 

stepped to the rostrum and K with 
the large American Flag in front 
of the lectern stirring slightly 
in the breeze, began reading the 
list of California servicemen 
killed in the Vietnam War. 

There were only about eighteen 
people present at the Courthouse 
when the demonstration began, 
but the number swelled to about ve by 3 A.M. when it be- 
gan to taper off again. 

Dave Johnson, one of the CLC 
students present, was asked how 
many students from Cal Luther, 
an were present. He replied that 
in his estimation "about twenty 
to twenty.five students, all told" 
participated in the Courthouse 

Because of the early hour, 
public reaction to the demonstra- 
tion was sparse. Small groups of 
young people drifted in and out 
during the period of CLC partic- 
ipation; quite a few cars drove 
past, also, but except for a few 
shouted obscenities there was no 
overt opposition to the demon, 
stration. Several drivers, in fact, 
shouted encouragement. There 
was no violence of any kind. 

At 4 A.M. a group from Moor, 
park College took to the lectern. 
They were to be followed by 
groups from Thousand Oaks, 
Ojai, and Ventura College in the 
solemn reading of the 40,000 
American victims of the Viet- 
nam War. 

Gornitzka Speaks 
On Rebels 

On Friday morning, November 
14, the CLC Homecoming Convo- 
cation was pleased to present to 
the CLC community Dr. Reuben 
Gornitzka. Dr. Gornitzka, active 
in various aspects of public rela- 
tions as a minister, confidential 
counselor, author, corporation 
consultant and radio and televi- 
sion personality, spoke on the 
topic "Rebel for a rebel's sake 
or for a cause?" Through a 
development of modern tech- 
nology and man's reaction to 
it, Dr. Gornitzka discussed the 
part of a rebel in our society. 
In a society that appears to 
be coming more harried and im- 

personal as technology advances, 
it is Dr. Gornitzka's opinion 
that the rebel must have a cause. 
He strengthened this idea through 
his closing statements concern- 
ing Jesus as a rebel. He spoke 
of Christ as the rebel with the 
most previous cause of the world 
. to bring people together. It is 
Dr. Gornitzka's hope that a rebel 
of the present will work to 
counter. act the separation caused 
by technological achievements 
and not merely to rebel for the 
sake of rebelling. 

Following Dr. Gornitzka's 
speech there was a short ques- 
tion and answer period in the 
gym which was in turn followed 
by an informal gathering in the 

Kuethe Expounds 
On Humanities 

On November 3, Dr. Kuethe 
spoke in chapel on the subject 
of the future of the humanities. 
He said that the great question 
now for the humanities is "Can 
the humanities any longer human- 
ize, i.e., can they fill the ethical 
vacuum In contemporary soci- 

There are no longer identifi- 
able and permanent standards and 
values. Value is a goal, not an 
achievement. Value is a challenge 
to sensitize a democracy about

emanate from the perceiver. 
What we need is the old meaning 
of 'tradition," transmission of

The humanities have to reduce 
the distance between their 
classes and life. We must learn 
to speculate beyond reason, and 
to dream dreams of what hasn't 
been, but what must be. 

Therefore, we can not find 
our future in books or instltu- 
tlons. We must experiment with 
a life style never tried before 
in human society. The means of 
adopting it or the benefits it 
will give us have never been 
fully explored. 

Objective analysis doesn't pro- 
vide the equipment to make judg- 
ments on the level of humanities. 
Goodness can't be taught. Jesus 
taught in parables to engage us 
in life, not in analysis. If we 
merge objective analysis with 
passionate engagement, then we 
can use each to explain what 
the other won't. We will then 
learn how to live life. 

Fall Fall Concert Critique

WMENC '67 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hidden Valley Music Seminar Choir.) 

On Saturday night, November 8, 
the CLC music department pre- 
sentedtts fall concert in the gym. 
The three-part presentation con- 
sisted of the "Canzon Nona Toni 
for Antiphonal Brass Choirs" 
by Giovanni Gabrieli, the "Ves- 
perae Solennes de Confessore" 
by Wolfgang Mozart, and "The 
Telephone," a one act comic 
opera by Gian-Carlo Menotti. 

This program arrangement 
was sufficiently varied and prom- 
ised an evening of interesting 
contrast. However, on the whole, 
the concert proved to be a dis- 
appointing one. It was marked 
by problems of control, phras- 
ing, pitch, technique, and an over 
all lack of musicianship. Despite 
the variety and contrast of the 
program, the presentation was 
full of dull similarity. 

Gabrieli's "Canzon" headed 
the program and the performance 
was, without a doubt, poor. A 
portion of the problems the brass 
choirs had with the piece are 
attributable to the antiphonal ar- 
rangement, one brass choir being 
on either side of the auditorium. 
Such problems as ensemble 
blend, togetherness during ritar. 
dando passages and metric chang- 
es are easily understood in this 
context. But dropped notes, bad 
phrasing and poorly timed en- 
trances are inexcusable. 

The music of Gabrieli is preg- 
nant with the fecundity of coun- 
terpoint waiting to bear its can- 
onlcal fruit. However, the total 
lack of control and musicianship 
of the brass choirs can only lead 
to the description of the perfor- 
mance as miscarriage. 

The Mozart "Vesperae Solen- 
nes de Confessore" or "Solemn 
Vespers," a joint effort of choir 
and symphonette, was also dis- 

The string section Introduced 
the work with a sloppy, muddled 
sound characterized by impre- 

cise pitch. With the choir 
entrance in the "Dixit" section 
the pitch was narrowed In spec 
trum, but there was a feeling of 
imperfect control of the notes 
that lent an air of imprecise- 
ness to the sound. This control 
problem, in fact, was recurrent 
throughout the piece. 

The sopranos were probably 
the worst offenders. In the "Con. 
fitebor" the soprano in the solo 
quartet gave the impression that 
the music was well out of hand, 
the soprano section also having 
difficulty In this particular seg- 
ment. Soprano problems were 
again seen in the "Laudate Dom- 
inum" and the «*Magnificat."The 
sopranos were not the only of- 
fenders, however, as in the '*Bea- 
tur Vir" the tenors came through 
with a sound closely resembling 
an hysterical shriek. 

Another problem was the enun. 
elation and phrasing. The words 
were unclear in general, but at 
the ends of phrases they were 
completely lost. Also, the lower 
bass notes were unclear and the 
sound was very thin. All of this 
added up to ostensibly poor phras- 

In spite of these criticisms 
there were some beautiful mo- 
ments. The fullness of sound in 
the "Laudate puerl" and the 
"Magnificat" was Impressive. 
The dynamic contrast was con. 
sistent and well done throughout 
the piece. But there was a def- 
inite paucity of intensity in 
anything but forte or fortissimo 
passages; without this Intensity 
Mozart is dull and lackluster. 
That is why the choir presented 
a disappointing and decidedly 
mediocre Mozart. 

In contrast, Menotti 's "The 
Telephone" was the highlight of 
the evening. "The Telephone" 
is a delightful little work about 
a gentleman's thwarted marriage 
proposals, the thwarting culprit 

being the telephone. The two 
leads, Bonnie Blume as Lucy 
and Jim Wilber as Ben, were 
both interesting and convincing. 
Although the acting was stilted 
at first, both Miss Blume and 
Mr. Wilber loosened up and gave 
delightful performances. 

Mr. Wilber has an excellent 
baritone voice that is flexible 
and well • controlled. His por- 
trayal of Ben was very pleasing 
although on occasion his lower 
notes did lack depth. But Mr. 
Wilber's control and depth of 
sound are impressive and are 
generally consistent throughout 
his wide range. 

Miss Blume is a soprano with 
beautiful tone and a calm, cool 
control of her voice. As Lucy, 
this control was very evident. 
As the soprano soloist in the 
"Laudate Domlnum," of the Mo- 
zart, however, this control was 
not consistent as her vibrato tend, 
ed to widen and slow down during 
extended phrases or notes. She 
also exhibited a certain insensi- 
tivity to the Mozart that was 
not the case in "The Telephone." 
There she presented an excel- 
lent understanding of her pass- 
ages and portrayed them well. 

The opera was obviously well 
thought out as the desired con- 
ceptlon was achieved. Congratu- 
lations are in order to Mr. Gert 
Muser for his excellent dlrec- 
tion of the opera. 

It would seem, thus, that the 
CLC music department is capable 
of producing good work, and more 
importantly of producing good 
music that is vibrant with the 
life of the composer's intent. 
Ill-concelved and half-prepared 
works do not belong in the realm 
of music and they do not belong 
at CLC. Therefore, in the com- 
ing musical performances at 
CLC, it would be Interesting to 
see a decrease in quantity, and 
a significant increase in quality.

♦The Pink House Experience" 
No. 2 

Dear Editor, 

In the October 23 issue of 
the Mountclef Echo there appear- 
ed an article entitled 'fThe 'Pink 
House* Experience." The article 
opened by stating that "F 
Wednesday evening for an hour 
between 9:00 and 10:00 there is 
an opportunity to encounter the 
living Jesus c s revealed 

by the Holy Spirit [n the Bible." 
It concluded with the two ques- 
tlons, "Want to hi nd study 
Want to deepeii 
your relationship with the Lord? 
Welcome to the Pink i 

Prior to and since the October 
23 article I have visited the 
"Bible studies" sever a times. 
I have had an opportunity to hear 
Swindle, Sarkissian and Rempt 
(guest speakers of the Pink 
House). What they have to say is 

certainly Bible oriented and chal- 
lenging to the person who is con. 
stantly worried about being 
"saved" and taken out oi 
"terrible" world. The chalh 
to become involved and turn 
world upside down, however, is 
lost in the familiar but somehow 
peculiar pin uses; "Jesus, Jesus, 
Jesus," "Praise the Lord," or 
"Hallelujah." 1 seriously ques- 
fcion the term Bible study when 
connected with the meetings. 
There is no place for honest 
questioning, dialogue, or under- 
standing unless one has a given 
understanding of Jesus, the Bible, 
and the Holy Spirit. Then, how- 
ever, the questioning, dialogue, 
and understanding is not in any 
objective or honest. One 
individual several weeks ago ask.

to his own life and hopefully 
others'. He was challenged by 
others to start his own group; 
stay out if his only intention was 
to disrupt the group. One mem- 
ber of the Pink House asked the 
individual if he was "saved" 
before even trying to understand 
the nature of the problem which 
led to the original questions. 
Since that evening many others 
have been asking similar ques- 
tions at the meetings only to be 
turned off, held off until the end 
of the meeting, or given super fi- 
cial answers to complex ques- 

It is difficult for me to ex- 
perience the Jesus Christ they 
are offering, let alone the peo- 
pie themselves. There is a feel- 
ing of defensiveness and insecur- 
ity which causes some people to 
almost entirely orient conver- 
through Bible verses. It 
can not be denied that the Pink 
House is meeting the needs of 
some people, but I question the 
needs bi fulfilled when they 

take the form of fear, misguided 
love, and group reiteration of 
traditional beliefs without chal- 

Christianity today can no long- 
er supply the pat answers and 
the words which themselves have 
come to new definitions. We must 
understand that Jesus lived at a 
particular time in history and 
used the language of his day. 
He did change understandings of 
words and concepts but he used 
his language. Today we have a 
different language and many con. 
cepts and beliefs expanded by 
science, technology, philosophy 
and Biblical Theology. As a re- 
sult, Christianity at the onset 
may appear and actually be very 
simple; but as one gropes for new 
ideas and Insights into life, 
entire nature of Christianity and 
its potential becomes much more 

I encourage anyone and every- 
one interested in seeking the 
place and relevancy of Christi- 
anity today to visit the Pink House 
and see what he will encounter. 
I further encourage response to 
this article as the Pink House 
is a complex and troubling ques- 
tion to many of us. I would hope, 
whether or not one responds, that 
he would visit and try to under- 
stand what is taking place at the 


Students Seek Solutions 

If a majority of student government work 
is being handled by committees and commis- 
sions, perhaps it is time to reevaluate 
them and to examine their quality and abil- 
ity to handle the specific duties with 
which they are charged. Further, if the 
Student Publications Commission is an exam- 
ple of the quality and ability of such com- 
mittees, we may as well leave student gov- 
ernment decisions in the hands of the buck 

This article is not a reflection upon 
the Senate's selection of John Guth as 
Echo editor. Indeed, we commendhis ap- 
pointment. The fumbling and boggling 
of the Student Publications Commission 
and their inability to make the reques- 
ted selection of the Echo editor for 
the Senate's subsequent approval leads 
us to wonder exactly what the commission 
has been doing for the past quarter. 

When Bill Bowers resigned from the 
editorship of the Echo, Senate gave the 
responsibility of selecting a new editor 
and the formulation of a policy guide for 
his selection to the Student Publications 
Commission. An argument ensued over the 
order of their priority: should the policy 
guide come first, or should the selection 
of the editor? The commission cannot yet 
agree . 

In addition to this basic difference of 
opinion, such actions as the division of 
this commission (of less than a dozen mem- 
bers) into three smaller groups (consisting 
of 3 or 4 members, which did not meet when 
they were supposed to) , whether or not a 
candidate for the editorship who was also 
on the committee could vote for himself, 
and personality conflicts among members of 
the commission all contributed to the total 
nothingness of commission action. The 
final shroud of evidence — the Commissioner 
cancelling the last meeting the commission 

could have before the Senate would call for 
their report — reflects the ineffectiveness 
of the commission, and of its members' in- 
ability to respond to what is not, as cir- 
cumstances would make us believe, an impos- 
sible task. 

Where to place the blame for the commis- 
sion's incompetence is a question which the 
Senate should investigate: is it, as the 
Commissioner would have us believe, an ide- 
ological conflict among the members of his 
commission (he chose them himself) or is 
it the Commissioner himself? 

The buck has got to stop somewhere .

Let -down 

Dear Editor: 

The convocation speech by Dr. 
Reuben Gornitzka was heralded 
by written word and adminis- 
trative action as an event of 
importance not to be missed. 
The topic, **Rebel for Rebel's 
Sake or for a Cause" indicated 
a relevant discussion of issues 
foremost in the minds of students 
involved in any political actlvt. 
ties on or off campus. The can. 
cellation of third period classes 
by the administration indicated 
that Dr. Gornitzka would have a 
message of such importance that 

students would be assured of the 
chance to question and discuss 
his points with him. With these 
expectations, we attended the con. 

The significance and quality 
of Dr. Gornitzka's speech, how- 
ever, was not equal to the pub. 
licity and especially was not of 
the same excellence of theprevi- 
ous speakers who we have been 
privileged to hear this year. 

His speech neither stimulated 
our minds nor warranted a dis- 
cussion period afterwards be. 

cause of the lack of any schol- 
arly or creative thought on his 
part. His topics were of a gen. 
eral nature, directed toward the 
emotional appeal of subjects al- 
ready discussed around the kit- 
chen table in every tract-box 
house In America. 

In summary it was simply a 
rehash lacking in uniqueness and 
in any directedness to the con. 
cerns and issues of students.

role of UMAS to relate to 
the Mexican student his responsi-

his leadership role. With these 
goals set before us, we will 
challenge the status quo. We will 
extend the benefits we reap to our 
people and the rest of the com- 
munity as well. 

It is our aim to play a key 
role in enabling our brothers 
and sisters to enjoy first class 
citizenship. To us this means 
equality of opportunity in educa- 
tion, and justice.

difficult to do. 

I called a class meeting two 
weeks ago and several sugges-

to the various kinds of activities 
our class should have. The main 
problem that arose in most of 
the suggestions was money. Our 
treasury has a total of $50, which

pride in his raza, culture, and 
his community. 

UMAS is dedicated to helping 
the Mexican -American establish 
and maintain his true identity. 
It is also dedicated to the stim-

Wrestling is probably the most 
demanding sport of any on the 
college scene today. No other 
sport demands so much of the ath- 
lete's energy and dedication. T/he 
wrestler has no noticable rest 
period during his eight minute 
match. There are three rounds, 
but the referee is responsible 
for making sure that there is no 
time for rest between them. All 
that happens between rounds is 
that the referee stops the wrest- 
lers, takes them back to the cen- 
ter of the mat, gets them into 
the proper position, and starts 
them wrestling again. In most 
sports, the athlete sets his own 
pace (as in track) or is allowed 
to rest between plays (as in foot- 
ball). The pace of a wrestler is 
not only set to a certain extent 
by the rules which call for con- 
tinuous action, but also by his 
opponent, who is hoping for a sign 
of weakness or tiring, at which 
time he doubles his efforts to 
score. Wrestling is almost the 
only individual contact sport. 
Thus it means that the wrestler 
must be prepared to prove him- 
self the better wrestler to any- 
one in his weight class. To do 
this, he must have the condition, 
ing of an exceptional cross-coun- 
try runner, the aggressiveness of 
a good linebacker, the quickness 
of a cat, and the dedication of 
a zealot. 

Since wrestling is an individ. 
ual sport, the teams are divided 
into weight classes, ten in college 
and thirteen in high school. Most 
wrestlers try to lose weight in 
order to compete in the lowest 
weight class possible. They do 
this so that they will be one of 
the strongest in any match that 
they will wrestle. Some wrest- 
lers do not cut weight, but often 
find themselves wrestling big. 
ger, stronger opponents. One of 
the most difficult things that a 
wrestler has to do is to be cut- 
ting weight when everyone around 
him is not worrying about what 
they eat in the least little bit. 
That is what I mean by dedica- 
tion. To do this and to go through 
a rough two-hour work-out is 
extremely hard and demands not 
only much desire, but often a lot 
of courage. Wrestling is truly 
a unique sport for men of cour- 
age and dedication.

T - shirts, tennis shoes, and 
knee pads were not previewed in 
this year's fashion forecast; how- 
ever, for thirteen members of 
our campus, the members of the 
Women's Intercollegiate Volley- 
ball Team, they are a very real 
part of the wardrobe. 

This is the first year that the 
CLC women have entered inter- 
collegiate competition in volley- 
ball on the small college level. 
They are playing schools such 
as Biola, Whittier, La Verne, 
and Pomona. The season is al- 
ready half over, and the team 
still is facing a second half 
against some strong opponents 
— especially Biola, a team which 
is at this date the league's first 
place team. 

Under the coaching of Miss 
Nena Amundson, the team has 
worked very hard to build up to 
the competitive level. They have 
been working out since Septem- 
ber, and practicing every day, 
often with the help of some ex- 
pert spikers on loan from the 
men's athletic teams. 

The team breaks down into 
two squads for competition: the 
"A" team, playing the best three 
games out of five; and the "B" 
team, playing a match of the 
best two games out of three. 

At this point in the season, the 
"B" team has acquired a 3-2 
win-loss record; the "A" team 
has suffered some heartbreaking 
losses and are relying on the 
second part of the season and 
the upcoming games to Improve 
their statistics. 

The team will travel to Whit, 
tier next Monday for a game, and 
will play their next home game 
a week from Monday (November 
24) at 7:30 p.m. against Pomona. 

Volleyball is a very fast- 
moving game requiring a high 
degree of skill, coupled with 
alertness of the individual and 
cooperative teamwork. These 
women are giving their all as 
representative of Cal Lutheran 
and the Intercollegiate program. 
The members of the team include: 
Sandy Kitts, Barb Merril, Sue 
Metzler, Dorothy Morrison ("A" 
Team captain), Patty Morrison, 
Diane Short, Rebecca Grunwald, 
Karen Jacobsen, Martha Moreno, 
Chris Mavery, Margie Nichols, 
Rita Rodes ( 4I B" Team captain), 
and Diane Spengler. 

Foregoing fashions' call, at 
least while on the volleyball 
court, these women are taking 
an active part in the ever-growing 
role of women in competitive 

Basketball season has started 
and the first game isnH far away. 
The varsity has two scrimmages 
coming up, one with Moorpark, 
and the other with Ventura J.C. 
Thursday night, Dec. 20th, is the 
annual alumni game, which pits 
former stars from CLC, such as 
Mike Mayfield, Craig Meyers, 
Wendell Smith, and Marv Branch 
against this year's varsity. The 
game starts at 8:00 with a fresh- 
man inter-squad game at 6:00. 

The split between varsity and 
freshman has been made and 
both teams appear to be loaded 
with quickness and fine shooters. 
Although neither team will be 
extremely tall, both have their 
share of height. The varsity has 
only three returning lettermen: 
6'5" Don Hossler, 6' Tim Iver- 
son, both juniors, and 5'9" soph- 
omore, Ralph Lucas. Junior to 
transfer from Ventura, 6'2" Tim

John Perrin. The freshmen prom- 
ise to be one of the best frosh 
teams CLC has had with the 
four men playing both ways, Reg. 
gie Stoner on the boards, and 
Rick Daley's shooting. 

In total, the basketball pro- 
gram here seems to be on the 
upswing. This year appears to be 
one in which optimism prevails 
and the Kingsmen fans are likely 
to see some exciting, winning,

Lucia Bride '69 

Are You There? 

The Lucia Bride ceremony is coming December 
7th as part of the annual CLC Christmas program. 
The election to choose Lucia Bride and her four 
princesses will be held in the dorms Monday night, 
December 1st. Lucia Bride will be chosen from 
the Senior Class; a girl deserving of this honor 
based on the qualities of unselfishness, friendli- 
ness, and Christian service will be selected. 
Each girl will nominate one senior girl as well 
as one girl from her own class. The four girls 
chosen from eacli of the classes will act as Lucia 
Bride's princesses. Voting will be done by ballot. 

The legends of Lucia Bride, whose name means 
light, are very old, one of the better known of them 
originating in Sweden. It concerns a woman named 
Lucia who lived during the Middle Ages. She fell 
in love and was to be married during the Christ, 
mas season, but while on a walk shortly before 
her wedding she saw several poor people unable 
to celebrate Christmas. She gave them her dowry, 

whereby, according to Swedish custom, making it 
impossible for her to get married. After her fiance 
rejected her, Lucia dedicated the remainder of 
her life to serving less fortunate people, espe- 
cially during the Christmas season. 

Her actions were misinterpreted and on Decem- 
ber 13, 304 A.D., she was condemned to be burn- 
ed as a witch. Miraculously the flames from the 
fire would not burn her, but her executioner stabbed 
her to death. It is believed that Lucia returned to 
earth in later years, seeking to help the poor and 
has come to be considered a Saint, as seen in her 
name Santa Lucia. 

Today Swedish families honor the legend of Santa 
Lucia by choosing the eldest female daughter to act 
as the Lucia Bride by wearing a white robe and a 
wreath of lighted candles while serving breakfast 
to her family. The candles she wears as the queen 
or bride of light are a symbol of the Holy Spirit 
telling of the birth of Christ. 

Walkathon Helps 

A total of fifty-seven miles was walked by CLC 
students in a Walkathon sponsored by the Mental 
Health Association of Ventura on Sunday, Novem- 
ber 23rd. The Walkathon was held to raise money 
towards the building of a Resocialization Center in 
Ventura. This Center will be aplace where socially 
unskilled persons will be able to learn or re-learn 
important skills. The Walkathon began at 8:30 
a.m. at Brennan's Nursery on Wells Road in Ven- 
tura and continued down Telegraph Road and Main 
Street to the future Headquarters of the Associa- 
Hon. The walk continued along a beach circuit. 

Two weeks prior to the walk, several of Mrs. 
Carmalt's speech classes were informed of the 
event. Most of the walkers began accumulating 
pledges from sponsors one week before the walk. 
Friends, teachers, businessmen, strangers, and 
all types of people were asked to pledge a cer- 
tain amount of money per mile; the pledges ranged 
from 10 cents to $1.50 per mile. People were very 
willing to support this cause, especially since it 
was tax deductible and offered free advertisement 
to the business organizations. 

At 7:30 a.m. students from CLC gathered in the 
cafeteria for breakfast and they also got sack 
lunchs from the school. After some delay, Bar- 
bara Merrill and Joan Erlcson arrived by car at 
the Nursery in Ventura at 9:40 to begin the walk. 
They were the 16th and 17th persons to register 
and write signs with lists of their sponsors to be 
taped to their backs. They were joined by another 
walker from Moorpark Junior College, Marlys 
Litterly, freshman. 

After the first mile, one of the shuttle cars 
stopped and offered cool drinks. All along the 
way, fruit, candy and juice were available from 
these cars driven by members of the Mental 
Health Association. Each mile was marked with 
a small cardboard sign. The four mile mark 
at the Towne House on Telegraph Road offered a 
place to rest, but the three girls continued non- 
stop to the eight mile mark on East Main Street. 

Along the way many cars stopped while the curious 
occupants read the signs. 

One woman walker was overtaken by the three 
girls who found out that she was getting about 
$25 per mile. One of her chief sponsors was the 
library at Pt. Hueneme, besides other friends and 
businessmen. While stopping to rest on a bus bench 
she had even been approached by two people who 
gave her a dollar apiece towards the cause. 

Dave Kronberg and Mary Hardin joined the 
walkers at 1 p.m. and each completed 10 miles, 
also wearing signs with lists of their sponsors. 

Following a short break at the future headquar- 
ters of the Association, Barbara, Marlys, and Joan 
continued following the beach circuit down Cali- 
fornia Street, along the beach, and up Laurel 
Street past the future Center. The second time 
around the circuit, Joan stopped to sit on the 
beach while Barbara jogged around. The girl from 
Moorpark stopped walking. The two girls from CLC 
then returned to the presently deserted office on 
East Main Street where pictures were taken and 
final mileage was calculated. Deciding that they 
hadn't walked enough, Barbara and Joan hobbled 
four miles back to the Town House where they 
stumbled upon their waiting car at 5 p.m., com- 
pleting 20 miles for Barbara and 17 for Joan. 

Approximately twenty-one students and adults 
from Ventura, Camarillo, and Thousand Oaks 
walked during the day. The total amount earned 
through pledges was $1500. 

The walk was not as organized as it could have 
been, but enthusiasm did not wear off, and even 
as the walkers Intermittently were passed by surf- 
board-laden cars, they undauntedly sang and grumb- 
led their way along. The only visible effects of the 
day's walk were several blisters, which seemed 
Insignificant when compared to the overall feeling 
of accomplishment. 

Dr. Campbell and Mr. Pitman were two of Bar- 
bara's sponsors and several of Joan's sponsors 
were the Mountclef Echo, Beta Hall, and Rev. 
Swanson, campus pastor.

Sweet Dreams ? Not With Pills 

LOS ANGELES— Most sleep- 
ing pills that promise "sweet" 
dreams in advertisements don't 
live up to that promise, and 
users are fortunate if they dream 
very much at all. 

This was discovered in the 
course of developing a new 
method of evaluating effective- 
ness of sleep drugs at the UCLA 
Medical Center's sleep research 
and treatment facility. 

Brain wave records taken 
during sleep arc an objective 
means of determining exactly 
when a subject falls asleep, how 
long he stays asleep, how much 
he dreams and the levels of deep 
sleep he achieves, according to 

Dr. Anthony Kales, director of 
the facility. 

Most sleeping pills suppress 
dreaming, it was found. When 
the drugs are discontinued, the 
user tends to dream excessively 
for a time. Some persons have 
frequent nightmares following 
drug withdrawal. This appears 
to be related to the degree of 
dependency on the drug. 

Several drugs significantly in- 
duced sleep initially, but their 
effectiveness diminshed marked- 
ly after a week. One over-the- 
counter sleeping tablet had no 
effect on sleeping patterns at 

UC-Berkeley Engineers 
Photograph Nerve Link 

BERKELEY — University of 
California engineers here have 
achieved the first photographic 
mapping of a complete nerve 
linkage from one cell to another. 

Their achievement opens a 
whole new method — using the 
scanning electron microscope — 
for studying the complex neural 
communications networks neces- 
sary to most living creatures. 

The research team, headed by 
Edwin R. Lewis, associate profes- 
sor of electrical engineering, is 
using a relatively new application 
of the scanning electron micro- 
scope to examine specimens of 
nerve tissue taken from the ab- 
domen of a marine snail. 

They have obtained the first 
photographs of what are identi- 
fied as synaptic knobs — the crucial 
point where the nerve impulse is 
passed along from one cell to 

Taken at magnifications of 
about 20,000 times, they show 
with remarkable three-dimen- 
sional clarity a number of such 
knobs at the ends of fibers which 
seem to lie across each other like 
a random pile of logs. 

The photographs show an area 
perhaps as large as the tip of a 

Other photographs at lower 
magnifications show complex 
bundles of such fibers and knobs 
lying together in clusters at the 
point where a large "trunkline" 
fiber from one cell meets a sim- 
ilar fiber from another cell. 

The engineers noticed that the 
knobs seemed to have five or six 
vnoK which wpi-p firmlv attached 
to other knobs or nerve tissue. 

A montage of photographs 
taken as the microscope moved 
along the specimen traced the 
complete linkage from cell to cell.

Lately, many people have been confused as 
to who is the Editor of the Echo. Let me 
clarify the situation I am involved in: 
At the beginning of this Fall quarter, Bill 
Bowers was the Editor. After the first 
issue, due to personal reason, he resigned 
as Editor. At this time, the A.S.B. Senate 
appointed myself as Editor for the Fall 
quarter, with the option of reapplying at 
the end of the Fall quarter for the remaining 
two quarters (Winter and Spring quarters) . 
I exercised the option and chose not to 
reapply for the remaining year. As a result, 
John Guth has been selected as Editor for 
the remaining year . 

During this quarter, the newspaper has 
attempted to gain a firmer technical and 
financial foundation from which to operate; 
and has, for the most part, succeeded in 
this task. Guth will have this foundation 
from which to advance his editorial policies 
and goals. I wish him luck and success for 
the remainder of the year. 

I would like to now thank all of those 
people whose contributions to this quarters 
newspaper were most graciously appreciated; 
and I would like to extend a special thank 
you to the following people for their special 
efforts: Kerry Denman, Shireen DiVackey, Ray 
Digiglio, Melanie Smith, and Marilyn Frost.

me on my trips to lay flowers on 
his grave. 

My son was killed while fight-

their bogus sorrow to those ag-

Easy On Eyes, Hard on Ears 

LOS ANGELES — Miniskirts 
may be easy on the eyes, accord- 
ing to general male consensus, 
but they can be hard on the ears. 

"Clothes absorb sound," says 
Dr. Vera O. Knudsen of UCLA. 
"With fewer clothes, as a general 
rule, a person reflects more sound 
waves, resulting in greater re- 

The former UCLA Chancellor 
voices no objections to miniskirts 
on esthetic grounds. But he offers 
some scientific reservations as a 
noted acoustician, whose profes- 
sional know-how is reflected in 
some 500 auditoriums and concert 
halls, including the first movie 
sound stages, the Hollywood 
Bowl, and the Los Angeles Music 

"As long ago as 1849, the great 
American physicist Joseph Henry 
pointed out the relationship be- 
tween people's clothing and the 
quality of sound in a concert hall 
or lecture room," says Dr. 

One of the first to act on this 
observation in 1802 was Brigham 
Young, who was disturbed by the 
excessive reverberations in the 
newly-opened Mormon Taber- 
nacle in Salt Lake City. To 
dampen the sound, the Mormon 
leader asked the ladies to bring 

extra overcoats and skirts and 
hang them on the walls. 

In designing modern structures, 
today's experts generally assume 
that most audiences will be fully 
dressed, and that some ladies may 
come to concert halls in evening 
gowns and furs. 

However, as skirts go up and 
absorption goes down, the acous- 
tical calculations may be thrown 
off. To prove the point, Dr. Knud- 
sen and his colleague. Dr. Leo P. 
Delsasso, assembled 10 mini- 
skirted UCLA secretaries in the 
physics department's reverbera- 
tion chamber. 

The scientists fired a pistol shot 
and analyzed the result in sabines. 
The lower the sabine count, the 
less sound is absorbed. 

The 10 miniskirted girls scored 
an average of 2.5 sabines each. 
In a 1964 test, taken in the same 
place and under the same con- 
ditions with 10 men and women, 
the group scored an average of 
4.0 sabines each. 

"Transferring the findings to, 
let's say, a rock and roll concert," 
says Dr. Knudsen, "it . is likely 
that the place would sound less 
raucous if the girls wore long 
skirts and woolens. However, we 
must be acoustically thankful that 
they don't wear bikinis." 

Judge Learned Hand: 

"Our nation is embarked upon a 
venture as yet unproved; we have 
set our hopes upon a community in 
which men shall be given un- 
checked control of their own lives. 
That community is in peril; it is 
invaded from within, it is threat- 
ened from without; it faces a test 
which it may fail to pass. The 
choice is ours whether, if we hear 
the pipes of Pan, we shall stampede 
like a frightened flock, forgetting 
all those professions on which we 
have claimed to rest our polity."

By Wilfred Burchett 
Guardian staff correspondent 


With the revelation in the Western press of the mass killings of the 
Inhabitants of Songmy last year, the world now recognizes that U.S. lead- 
ers and military commanders in Vietnam are guilty of the same type of 
war crimes for which the Nazi leaders were hanged. These crimes are 
not simplv "mistakes." 

As the delegates of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of 
South Vietnam have pointed out, the destruction of Songmy is only one of 
a number of large-scale murders of civilians by the U.S. and its allies 
and that these massacres are only part of the larger picture of deliber- 
ate and methodical daily acts of murder and destruction in South Viet, 
nam by U.S. bombing, napalming and poison chemicals. 

Details of the Songmy massacre were revealed in a letter from a local 
section of the Liberation Women's Association of South Vietnam re- 
leased by the PRG delegation at a Nov. 20 press conference of the Paris 
talks. Actually, long before reports about Songmy were published in 
the U.S., the letter had been presented to a press conference in Hanoi 
by PRG ambassador Nguyen Van Tien, who is now the deputy chief of 
the PRG delegation to the talks here. 

The letter describes an artillery bombardment which was followed by 
the arrival of U.S. troops in Songmy by helicopter on March 16, 1968: 
"From the moment of their arrival, the aggressors opened fire on every- 
body, sparing no one, destroying houses and livestock. The U.S. troops 
were shouting 'Vietcongf Vietcongl They covered a wounded mother 
with a baby at her breast with lime. Two young women were raped and 
then killed together with their four children. . . A group of about one 
hundred women, children and old people were herded towards a canal 
and machine-gunned and then grenades were thrown into the heap of 
wounded and dying and dismembered bodies lying in a sea of blood. 
Small children who were not hit by bullets or grenade fragments were 
smothered under the weight of bodies. 

The report from the Women's Association says that the obvious pur- 
pose of the operation was to destroy the village and massacre the inhabi- 
tants. Continuing, the letter states: "In a single day, 502 people in our 
and neighboring hamlets who were working here were massacred under 
horrible circumstances. Over 170 children were killed. In our hamlet. . . 
nothing Is left but ashes and cries of grief. In virtually every home 
candles are burning for the dead." 

Everything in this letter from the Women's Association has been cor- 
roborated by the firsthand American and Vietnamese 

(continued on Page 10) 



The slaughter of the population of Songmy by U.S. 
troops is one of a continual series of atrocities 
suffered in this war, by both sides. It is not unique.

CLC's UMAS organization, United 
Mexican American Students, and the 
college pastor are jointly sponsoring 
a Chlcano Live In, January 16-18. 
The Live In will give 15 students the 
opportunity to share in the lives of 
Chlcano families for one weekend. 
The project, initiated by Anthony Fer- 
nendez, will provide first hand parti- 
cipation in the living and human cir- 
cumstances of a minority group family 
in this country. The Mexican-American 
population of Ventura County is in 
excess of 30 per cent. 

Pastor Swanson said, "The Live In 
is designed primarily for students 
who are in the areas of education, 
business, Latin American studies, and 
pre-seminarlans. Our desire is to offer 
a realistic awareness of a minority 
group's experience than is available 
through second hand sources. This 
kind of understanding is essential to 
anyone working in a direct relation- 
ship with Chlcano persons. Precon- 
ceived notions can only be illusory 
unless they are challenged by what 
exists in fact." 

The families, who will be opening 

their homes to the students, are being 
recruited by Fernendez. One student 
will be placed in each home. He, or 
she will be spending the weekend doing 
what the family does. If a male, the 
student will likely spend Saturday pick- 
ing with the man of the house. If a 
female, the student will share the 
household work with the mother. The 
rest of the time will be spent social- 
izing with the family according to 
their custom. 

Tne participants will leave cam. 
pus on the afternoon of the 16th and 
return late Sunday afternoon. 










President Raymond Olson has announced that 
Dr. O.P. Kretzmann, Chancellor of Valparaiso 
University, Valparaiso, Indiana, will be CLC's 
first Distinguished Professor in Residence. 
During the winter quarter, Dr. Kretzmann 
may be involved with Rev. Marvin Cain and 
Dr. John Kuethe in the Experimental College 
course in Christianity and Modern Problems. 
During this time, he will also be available 
for lectures in religion and philosophy courses. 

In the third quarter he will move into other 
disciplines such as English and Creative Arts. 
His involvement will be with upper division 
students, pastors and laymen in connection 
with the experimental college.

chapter at CLC. Louis Sanchez is 
President of the local organization. 

This chapel is intended to provide

Stalking The Wild 
Liturgy In Ethiopia 

The Music Club is presenting Dr. Ar.hur 
A. Moorefield as its guest speaker on January 
14. His talk will be about his year's adventures 
in Ethiopia. Dr. Moorefield took a leave of 
absence fjpm his duties at CLC to study and 
record the liturgical music of the Ethiopian 
Orthodox (Coptic) Church. He received grants 
from the American Philosophical Society, the 
African Studies Program of the Social Science 
Research Council, and the Lutheran Church 
in America. 

Dr. Moorefield and his family left to live in 
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on August 13, 1968. 
They had their own house in the compound of 
the Good Shepherd School, where Dr. Moore- 
field was Head of the Music Department. There 
were approximately 300 students in attendance 
with over a third of them taking private music 
lessons. Dr. Moorefield had several choirs 
and an orchestra with which he staged "Amahl 
and the Night Visitors," and also scenes from 
"South Pacific," "Music Man," and "My 
Fair Lady." 

Besides attending to his duties at the Good 
Shepherd School, Dr. Moorefield was also 
working on his research of the music of the 
Coptc Church. He spent the first few months 
visiting the various churches in Addis Ababa. 
He was able to establish a good rapoire with 
the priests and debteras (cantors) at Beit Bahrta 
Mariam (The House of the Entrance of Mary). 
He was allowed to record their Sunday Mass 
and also their matins and vesper services. 
After three months, Dr. Moorefield travelled 
to the back country on several expeditions to 
make comparisons of the traditions of the city 
church and its western influences with the 
churches not yet touched by the West. On one 
expedition Dr. Moorefield visited some of the 
newly discovered rock churches in Tigre Prov. 
ince. Many of these churches have been in 
continuous use since the Fifth Century. 

Dr. Moorefield is now back at CLC as 
Associate Professor in Music. He is working 
on plans for publications of books and record- 
ings from his experiences in Ethiopia. He will 
be telling of some of his adventures through 
slides and recordings on January 14 at 7:00 
p.m. in K-l. The topic will be "Stalking the 
Wild Liturgy in Ethiopia." (Suggested for ma- 
ture audiences). 






A letter to our readers: 

A new publication will make its debut on this campus 
in January, 1970. It will not merely be an extension of 
the old ECHO, but rather a different concept in campus 
newspapers. The ECHO has reverberated its last; neither 
its goals nor its appeal were broad enough for it to succeed. 

We will have a new publication, brisk, challenging, and 
open to its own mistakes. Its emphasis will be on ideas 
and interpretation: we live in a college community, where 
the accent is on ideas, and we feel very strongly that the 
purpose of a college newspaper is much more than just 
to be a bulletin board. It should reflect views, should 
emphasize opinion, encourage analysis and experimenta- 
tion. We do not intend to slight objective coverage of the 
news on this campus, rather we shall attempt to see the 
why behind the "what." 

A major facelifting operation is in store for the news- 
paper. There will be a new layout reflecting modern 
trends in college newspapers, one which will be more open 
and conducive to innovation. It will not be as formal and 
conventional as the present layout. 

As the staff gains its own identity the formulation of 
editorial policy shall be decided by the staff in its en- 
tirety, functioning as a model democratic unit, putting forth 
their own proposals — with the understanding that we 


shall try to advocate the best possible proposals for the 
college and larger community. 

Our presentation of opinion and ideas will not be limited 
to students: we shall invite faculty, non-students, and 
former students to write for us. We shall attempt to have 
guest columns by personalities in government, entertain- 
ment, literature and the arts. 

It has been said that there are three things which are 
real: God, human folly, and laughter. Since the first two 
are beyond our comprehension we must do what we can 
with the third. There will be space in this publication for 
laughter: we intend to introduce a little more irrever- 
ence to a world that takes itself altogether too seriously. 
We're going to poke fun at some of the more staid insti- 
tutions on this campus, human and otherwise. A little 
cold water in the face of a museumpiece can be remark- 
ably rejuvenating, and humanizing, too. There will be space 
for reflection and philosophizing; poets will have a place 
on our staff. 

None of this we can do alone, so we invite students and 
faculty with imagination and daring to join our rebellion 
against dullness and mediocrity. Bring your own weapon: 
enthusiasm first, skill, curiosity, and a willingness to 
make excellence your standard. The date in January, 
1970, CLC»s Second Decade. We guarantee you some- 
thing out of the ordinary.

Take checking accounts. 

We have four of them, so 
you have a choice. Tenplan* , for

Another good thing is the

You can have a zero

And, you won't have to open a 
new account come fall. Or, 
because Bank of America has 
more branches than any bank in 
California, there's probably one

able to transfer the balance in

highly recommended by mission, 
aries in Guyana. 

Rita originally was a biology- 
science major and had planned 
on entering a medical school until 
last spring. After her father's 
death, Rita changed her major 
to Latin-American studies. Be- 
cause she changed her majors 
in her senior year, she is taking 
a fifth year to complete her new 
major. She would like to con. 
tinue with graduate work, and 
her vocational objective is to 
either teach on the university 
level or to work in government 

A great lover of music, espe- 
cially popular music, Rita likes 
dancing, reading novels, and 
working on her stamp collection 
when and if she finds any free 
time. She works at the convales- 
cent hospital nearby CLC. 

Rita is enthusiastic about 
CLC's growing international 
community. She feels that the 
interaction between foreign stu- 
dents and native Americans is 
very good. According to her, 
nothing is greater than going 
abroad and studying with the 
people of other countries and 
studying their communities. 

The friendly and helpful atmos- 
phere at CLC has greatly helped 
Rita adjust to the American way 
of life, and she is very grateful 
to the many considerate people 
she has met. Like many students 
from foreign countries, at first 
Rita was afraid of losing her 
own culture and as a result was 
fearful of becoming too involved 
with a foreign way of life. How- 
ever, upon realizing that only by 
Interacting with other people and 
by becoming involved could she 
strengthen her own culture and 
spread it among her friends, 
she has enjoyed her many exper- 
iences and personal contacts.

DATE: January 7, 1969 


TO: CLC Student Body 

FROM: Lyle B. Gangsei, Dean of Students 

Arline L. Heckerson, Dean of Women 


At a meeting of the Ad Hoc Commission on Student Governance held 
on December 11th, some pro tempore agreements were reached in regard 
to the issue of women's hours. The essence of the agreements has been 
transmitted to each student by a letter from the President which was 
mailed out immediately following this meeting of the 11th. It seems 
that a recapitulation is in order now as the second quarter opens. 

1. The following schedule of hours is in effect in the women's residence 
halls as students take up residence in preparation for the opening of 
the winter quarter: 




Self- deter mining 


12:00 midnight 

12:00 midnight 


Self -determining 

2:00 a.m. 

2:00 a.m. 

Grace Period: A reasonable number (twenty) of late minutes per quarter 
is granted to cover emergency situations. 

Late Leaves: Extensions of one hour beyond closing on Friday and 
Saturday nights are granted as follows upon pre-arrangement with 
the Head Resident: 

Sophomore Two each quarter 

Freshmen One each quarter 

Security Provision: In order to provide for the security of residents 
and the well-being of the Residence Hall staff, the main doors will 
be locked as follows: 

12:00 midnight 

2:00 a.m. 

Thereafter, security guards will admit returning women into their 
Residence Hall at the following stipulated times: 

12:30 a.m. 
1:00 a.m. 
1:30 a.m. 

2:00 a.m. 
2:30 a.m. 
3:00 a.m. 

4:00 a.m. 

Residence Hall doors will be unlocked at 5:00 a.m. 

It Is expected that Junior and senior women coming in late will 
be considerate of the staff and their fellow students and maintain 
quiet in the area of the Residence Halls. 

2. The schedule outlined above has been referred by the Ad Hoc Commission 
to the College Committee on Student Conduct for study and possible modi- 
fication, and attention will be given to the matter by this group. 

3. The success of this and any other new program depends upon the maturity 
of the individuals involved and upon their willingness to express this 
maturity corporately through Residence Hall government. The College 
Administration is content to leave the matter there and will normally 
Involve itself only at the point of continued aggravation where there is 
no appropriate remedial response on the part of Residence Hall government. 
This does not preclude professional counseling where the need for such 
is indicated. 

LBG: ALH: ddw 



The return to studies and classes brought no unexpected or 
trailing decisions on what was next. And next to many and most 
students were to fence themselves into, their, many hours they 
would spend studying. What was unexpected — the aid in which 
the campus of CLC would help their students fence themselves 
into studying. 

What was unexpected? 


There seems to be somewhat of a rumor or more correctly 
put a thought about the reason of now present hours. The hours 
present for freshmen and sophomore women, are because of poor 
grades and a drop in grade levels. Particularly true of fresh- 
men and soph, when the fence was not erect or hours were not 
in effect last quarter. The now present condition of hours, 
fence, erected for student study habits in which the administra- 
tion or Olson declares students too immature to erect this for 
themselves — CLC will aid. 

The truth or reason for this now present fence; or the truth 
or reason for these now present hours, may or may not lie in 
this rumor. But what has become rumor, unexpected and trailing 
— where the battle has ended and, or begun for the abolishment 
of hours for CLC campus women. 

Well here's the scope! 

Some time last quarter the committee handling the decision 
about hours unanimously voted that for this quarter hours 
remain undetermined. Kay Strawder and Candy Maitland two of 

the four students involved, the same number of faculty and 
administration, and three to four members of the community 
all voted in this direction. 

In turn the decision about hours would be handled and then taken 
up by the student conduct committee and likely others for more 
concrete decisions. Yet we found evidence of the fence even 
before we returned, for Olson had decided and recommended 
the present hours effective for this quarter. 

The truth or reason for this now present fence; the truth or 
reason for these now present hours, has become rumor, unex- 
pected and trailing — where the battle has ended and, or begun 
for the abolishment of hours for CLC campus women. For if 
the abolishment of hours has just begun, it lies only with the 
freshmen and sophomore women if the battle is to end. 


Women of CLC we commend you on efforts well done, that 
may mean ended and or just may have begun the abolishment. 
Personal compliments from the gentlemen — ladies to abolish 
hours is your desire, then it is you whom must light the fires, 
the torch I can only carry. 

A conservative government Is 
an organized hypocrisy. 
--Disraeli ' 

At 4 a.m. on this particular Wednesday morning I am 
filled with a quiet sorrow for what tlUs world is; for what 
you and I have become In the roles we play; for men I 
know who bustle by with a cheery greeting that becomes 
the slandering knife when you turn your back from these 
faces one hardly knows; for fellows who pick your brains 
when the fruit is free, the fair-weather friends of little 
hope and less love; for that Man who can live with his 
crippled conscience, trapped on the one-way suburban 
strand of a web of his own making, who is advantaged 
and clasps his greed to his breast, a fleur de lis he cannot 
let go; for friend Lyle, whose toluene tears refuse to 
freeze when faced with subzero facts; for the habitual 
games of knowledgable people with stilted souls, these 
stuffed sages peering down from precarious pedestals 
they have wrought from their fleeting facts; for men and 
women playing so hard at being men and women, of sexy/ 
painted / scented selves, never really free to possess bare 
body or naked soul; for dishonest men, busy shortchange 
ing themselves at my expense; for those of us secretly 
seeking a change of place, a substitute body, a surer 
century; for those who think that there must be something 
that can make a difference; for you and for me, a bit of 
quiet sorrow. 

Sq here we are: you and I, each with our respective 
Jobs to do. Yet somehow we can make a different world, a 
newer and better one, if we can but cut through the con- 
fusion, the illusion, the viciousness and crud that form the 
gulf between our separate persons. Ultimately, that is 
what will be behind this paper: elimination of the gulf. 
It will start with us, the people who work on the paper, 
and If it works, well, one day we should be alive to see 
it spread. 

There is no editorial comment on the content of this 
issue. There need be none, and at this time any such com- 
ment would be unfair to our staff and Inconsistent with 
what we are trying to accomplish. Next week we shall 
attempt to clarify what the state of the newspaper Is and 
just what our goals are going to be. In the meantime, we will 
need a new title for the paper (weekly). If you have an 
idea, submit it with the reader opinion poll below. 

The nature of this column is not to negate what trans- 
pires in the milieu of CLC but to expose in hones that 
people, responsible people, will take constructive action 
to up grade conditions surrounding CLC, its students, 
faculty, and administrators. 

It has been rumored that certain people feel Chapel is 
a relevant facet to our campus. If relevancy can be equat- 
ed in terms of membership, then Chapel certainly has missed 
the priorities of things to do for most the student body. 
So what the hell; we have a good pastor in Gerald 
Swanson and if tiie old traditionalists would let him have 
his way, I believe he could revamp the whole concept of 
Chapel and make it a more meaningful happening. Be- 
sides that, wouldn't it be a good idea for CLC to have its own 
Lutheran Congregation? ALC, LCA, AND Missouri Synod 
all Included on a non«synodical congregation? 

Well, whatever! 

Hope you women enjoy your tokenism on hours. At 
least the Jr. & Sr. women are thought of as responsible. 
I wonder though, how come the guards are taking down 
names of upper class women who come In after 12 
p.m. I notice too, that only certain times are allowed 
for entrance Into the women's dorms? Someday, maybe 
you freshmen and sophomores will grow up and be thought 
of by Administrators and the Board of Regents as re- 
sponsible. Until then we must protect your virginity by 
bringing you in at 12 on weekdays and 2 a.m. on week- 
ends. As we all know, things only happen after those 

There has been rumors that we need to recruit more 
Lutheran students because our average is approaching

To the Editor: 

I hope this letter finds all of 
you healthy and of good spirit. 
At the moment I'm healthy, but 
not of good spirit. 

I'm sure you have by now heard 
of the lottery system for the draft 
which our country has decided 
to use in dealing with its young 
men. You know, it was really 
interesting at first to watch the 
reactions of the men in my dorm 
as they heard the numbers read 

It was at first interesting and 
then sickening as I began to see 
what happened. As the numbers 
were being read off, human be- 
ings began to change their shape 
and soon took on a new form, a 

Humans Become Numbers 

Human beings no longer 
existed, but only numbers. The 
common remark was and still 
is, "What's your number?" All 
of a sudden, people, real live 
breathing people, became no 
more than a number. 

How did this take place? This 
death of man's identity? Was 
it through a conquering enemy 
at gun point? A communist gov- 
ernment, where supposedly 
people exist only by the dictates 
of the state? NO!! 

The government of the United 
States of America, which stands 
for and guarantees EVERY in- 
has chosen a numbered blue 
capsule out of a sterile glass 
Jar which will dictate the future 
life of every young man in Amer- 

It tells him what the state Is 
going to "allow" him to do with 
the next years of his life. It 
has said, "We, the state, have 
chosen what is best, and you 
must conform. You are now a 
number, and as a number we know 
what is to be done with you. 

"Oh yes. let us, sing unto the 
most holy and almlght amerlcan 

god and say, "My country 'tis 
of thee. Sweet land of liberty. 
Of thee I sing: Land where my 
fathers died, land of the pll T 
grims' pride, From every moun- 

Freedom 'Is Decided' 
Oh yes, we do have freedom, 
don't we! The freedom of the 
draft board to decide FOR me 
and my brothers what should be 
done with the rest of our lives. 
I, especially, should be thank- 
ful and bow down and give al- 
legiance because my government 
has given me a "special num- 
ber" called 4-D. 

You see, our divinely or- 
dained rulers have said, "Let 
there be separation of church 
and state. And it was so. And 
they said, It is good, and to in- 
sure its continual goodness, Let 
us give ministers and future 
ministers a special number." 

This guarantees that I am dif- 
ferent and should be spared in 
any involvement of my coun- 
try's just and merciful military 
commitments to the oppressed 
peoples of the world. 

My rulers have decided that 
I can best serve the "national 
Interest" by remaining home with 
my special number and by tell- 
ing the present and future 
members of my "little flock" 
all about how good and gracious 
my rulers are and of the won- 
derful things they give people, 
like "special numbers," which 
give us "freedom." 

Oh yes, dear people, let us 
fall down on our knees and give 
thanks to the amerlcan god whom 
my rulers tell me gives me this 
freedom, this liberty, this choice. 
Thanks be to the amerlcan god,' 

Hallelujah, Amen.

just a little over 50 per cent. Question: Do you want CLC 
to be a good Lutheran, liberal arts College or a good 
Lutheran Liberal arts College? 

Why did our basketball team spend so much money 
to go to Alaska? Why also are a lot of our good basket- 
ball players not on the team this year? 

I noticed that the number of honors students from High 
School nas gone down! In 1966 we had 34 and 67 had 19, 
and 68 had 18, and 21 in 69. Are we able to compete 
in drawing the top academic talent from other schools? 

One wonders why CLC students seem to be content 
with open dorms on two nights a week. Is It not true 
that for an education to be truly meaningful that the stu- 
dent needs to live in a mature environment? The atmos- 
phere in which a student lives may be as important as 
the class room. Education is not only mental, but also 
spiritual, emotional, and social. The student needs the 
freedom of self -determining hours and open dorms twenty- 
four hours a day, in order to have a relavant environ- 
ment enhancing his education and giving him more lati- 
tude on the making of existential choices forever affect- 
ing his life. 

In termination of this week's maiden article, let it be 
known that Luke Jonas sees the student as the number 
one asset of this College-the buildings, the administration, 
the faculty are here to serve the educational and social 
needs (since this is a residental College) of the students. 
Old Luke would like to know when this ideal will be ful- 
filled, and when the value of the person will be transen- 
dent over the institution. 



"They came for the Panthers and I said nothing because 
I was not a Panther. 

They came for the black man, and I said nothing 
because I was not black. 

Then they came for the students, and I said nothing 
because I was not a student. 

Then they came for the liberals and I said nothing 
because I was not a liberal. 

And when they came for me, I looked around and 
said nothing, because I was alone."

been expressed by a small number of readers. How do you feel?

witnesses recently quoted in the U.S. press. 

According to these reports, the U.S. unit which carried out the 
atrocities at Songmy was Company "C", 1st Battalion, 20th 
Infantry, 11th Brigade of the Americal Division. Company "C" 
was commanded by Capt. Earnest L. Medina, 33, who apparently 
encouraged the massacre. Peter Braestrup wrote in the Nov. 23 
Washington Post: "Versions of Medina's exact words vary but he 
promised the men a fight the next day. He had orders to clean- 
destroy-the Vietcong hamlets in Pinkvi'le," as the U.S. troops 
referred to Songmy. 

Medina's orders and other statements in Braestrup's account 
clearly show that responsibility for the massacre is shared by higher 
level commanders as well as the men in the field. Braestrup notes 
that Songmy was in a long stretch of coastal Quang Nam, Quang 
Tin and Quang Ngai provinces that Gen. Creighton Abrams cha- 
racterized earlier this year as "hard core" pockets of enemy 
strength. And why not? As Lt. Col. David Gavin, U.S. "district 
advisor" in Quang Ngai province said, Songmy was in an area 
that "had been Communist territory since the 1940s." In other 
words Songmy had been liberated since the first Resistance War 
against French colonialism. That was its crime. 

Eyewitness ordered to keep quiet 

Seymour M. Hersh, writing in the Nov. 20 San Francisco 
Chronicle, has reported the story of Sgt. Michael A. Bernhardt, 
now at Fort Dix, N.J. who was a member of Company "A" in 
Songmy on March 16 last year. Bernhardt served in the platoon 
commanded by 1st Lt. William L. Calley Jr., who, along with Sgt. 
David Mitchell, has now been charged by the U.S. Army with the 
murder of 1 09 Vietnamese civilians at Songmy. Bernhardt wanted 
to report his story right after the incident, but Army authorities, 
including Capt. Medina and unnamed other officers, ordered 
Bernhardt to keep quiet, alleg : ng an investigation was in progress. 

An officer who did not keep quiet did not live long. Bernhardt 
and another witness, according to Hersh, said that "a helicopter 
pilot from an aviation support unit landed in the midst of the 
incident and attempted to quell it. The officer warned that he 
would report the shootings." The next day the pilot was "killed 
in action." Army authorities finally questioned Bernhardt two 
months ago. 

'"The whole thing [at Songmy) was so deliberate. It was 
point-blank murder,'" said Bernhardt whose account as reported 
by Hersh follows in part: 

'"They ICalley's men] were doing a whole lot of shooting up 
but none of it was incoming— I'd been around enough to tell that. 
1 figured we were advancing on the village with fire power. 

"'I walked up and saw these men doing strange things. They 
were doing it three, ways. One. They were setting fire to the 
hootches [dwellings] and hufs and waiting for people to come 
out and shooting them up. Two: They were going into the 
hootches and shooting them up. Three: They were gathering 
people in groups and shooting them. 

"'As I walked in you could see piles of people all through the 
village ... all over. They were gathered up into large groups. 

'"I saw them shoot a M-79 (grenade launcher] into a group 
who were still alive. But it [the shooting] was mostly done with a 
machine gun. They were shooting women and children just like 
anybody else. 

'"We met no resistance and I only saw three captured wea- 
pons. We had no casualties. It was just like any other Vietnamese 
village-old papa-sans, women and kids. As a matter of fact, 1 
don't remember seeing one military-age male in the entire place, 
dead or alive. The only prisoner I saw was a^bout 50.'" 

Bernhardt himself was in a small minority of the unit who 
refused to participate in the massacre. He was "ostracized" by the 
other men afterwards because of his attitude. He is now an 
assistant platoon leader at a Ft. Dix basic training company. 

Another witness to the Songmy massacre was Michael Terry, 
22, formerly in Medina's company and now a sophomore at 
Brigham Young university in Utah. As reported by Hersh, Terry 

'"They [the U.S. troops] just marched through shooting 
everybody .... They just started pulling people out and shooting 

Do Hoai, a Vietnamese ol about 40 and one of the few 
survivors of Songmy told essentially the same story of the events 
as the American Witnesses. As reported by Henry Kamm in the 
Nov. 17 N.Y. Times, Hoai stated that the entrance of U.S. troops 
was preceded by an artillery barrage of about an hour's duration. 
"Then American soldiers entered the village, meeting no opposi- 
tion." wrote Kamm. "They ordered all the inhabitants out of 
their homes. 

"Although the area had been largely under Vietcong control, 
the villagers had engaged m no hostile action against the Ameri- 
cans and bore no arms. 


"The Americans forced the villagers to gather in one place in 
each of the three clusters of houses that formed part of the village 
of Songmy .... 

"The three death sites were about 200 yards apart. 

"When the houses had been cleared, the troops dynamited 
those made of brick and set fire to the wooden structures .... 

"Then the Vietnamese were gunned down where they stood. 
About 20 soldiers performed the executions at each of three 

Nguyen Van Thieu's Saigon regime has denied that any massa- 
cre occurred. The absurdity of such a statement, when the facts 
are now known to all, reveals how far out of touch with reality 
the Saigon leaders are. 

Prior to the Saigon denial, Kamm in the same N.Y. Times 
article wrote: "The Saigon provincial Governor, Col. Ton That 
Khien, said today [Nov. 16] that the killings had occurred, but 
he added that the number of dead was perhaps exaggerated. 

"A responsible Vietnamese official close to the case," con- 
tinued Kamm, "said that those slain probably numbered between 
450 and 500." 

Col. Khien also said, according to Kamm, that "he admired the 
pacification work done by the Americal division and considered 
the killings [at Songmy] an unfortunate exception." 
But the fact is that Songmy is not an exception. 

At the Nov. 20 press conference here, PRG spokesman Duong 
Dinh Thao, also reported on a massacre at Balangan village, a few 
miles from the. provincial capital of Quang Ngai where more than 
1200 women, children and old men were drowned during the 
"accelerated pacification" drive into the Balangan area last Janu- 

In the U.S. operation which began Jan. 13, 1969, over 1 1,000 
inhabitants, many of them attached neck-to-neck by ropes, were 
herded into a concentration camp and their village was destroyed. 
The prisoners included over 3200 women, 6700 children and 
more than a thousand older men. They were detained under 
unimaginable conditions, virtually starving and without medical 

The inmates of the camp began struggling for the improvement 
of their wretched conditions and in early March, on three separ- 
ate occasions, groups of about 400 each were loaded aboard 
barges and towed out to sea by naval vessels which speeded up 
and made sharp turns, causing the barges to capsize, drowning 
those aboard. There was only a single survivor to relate what 
happened. For many days afterwards, bodies were washed ashore. 
The camp officials explained to the relatives of the victims that 
they were "drowned in a storm while being transferred to Cam- 

New details on chemical warfare 

The War Crimes Commission of the PRG has recently released 
details on the stepped up use of chemical warfare by the U.S., 
since Nixon took office. 

In an operation in Tayninh province July 18-20, five tons of 
chemicals were sprayed. More than a thousand persons were 
poisoned, among whom were 30 children who died. According to 
still incomplete statistics, during Nixon's first 10 months in the 
White House, 285,000 people were affected by poison chemicals. 
Among these, some 500, mainly children and old people died. 

A staggering total of 2,300,000 acres of ricefields and orchards 
have been destroyed this year. (The U.S. has even destroyed 
40,000 acres of rubber plantations in Cambodia, for which Chief 
of State Norodom Sihanouk is demanding compensation.) 

According to the report of the War Crimes Commission, be- 
sides destroying crops, the U.S. poisons kill the poultry and dairy 
cattle and the fish in streams and lakes. Humans who receive a 
sufficient dose either die or lose consciousness, while a smaller 
dose causes vomiting, fever, headaches and skin eruptions. Preg- 
nant women affected by the "crop poison" suffer miscarriages 
and it causes mothers' milk to be unfit for nursing their children. 

News Item Americans are more disturbed about 

the exposure of Songmy in the press 
than they are bout the tragady itself. 
Inclusion of "Songmy" in this issue does not in 
any way imply that this represents the viewpoint 
of the staff. It does imply that the U.S. Mil- 
itary press has lied to the people of the United 
States. What do you think? Are these the facts 
or are you a "typical" American who is more shocked 
about the news coverage of Songmy than about the 
fact of Songmy?

At 8:15 on Monday, January 12, 1970, a happening 
took place In the CLC gym, that was later described 
by one of the cast as "madness, beautiful madness." 
It was the Experimental Wing giving a totally Impro- 
vised performance as part of the Concert and Lecture 

It actually started at 8:18 when Gerald Rea gave a 
preview of what was to come In future weeks In the 
Concert and Lecture series. He then Introduced the 
Experimental Wing and it started to happen. 

The nine members came out and started by asking 
for the name of something canned, then a magazine, 
something that comes and goes, an Ice cream flavor, 
and a type of soup. With each suggestion, they then 
did a -ehort skit. When Playboy was suggested for the 
magazine, all the skit consisted of was the holding 
out of a centerfold (In pantomime of course) but that 
was enough. Then they came out In groups of three 
and asked for positions. The first group got running, 
Jumping and prone. The two girls fought over the one 
guy who got the. prone position. It was settled by the 
girls by dividing the week between them and giving him 
Sunday off. When asked what he was going to do on his 
day off he said, "Go to church." The other two groups 
did skits also. 

Then the whole group came out again and asked for 
a slogan. They got "love It or leave it." They started 
with stills (each member would get in a position and 
be motionless). They looked like 3-D photos. They also 
did skits on It. 

They then did a musical piece. Eight members came 
out and asked for a sound of the night, a disaster, a 
toothpaste, an emotion, a Bible character, etc., and 
one member directed it using the sounds they made. 

It closed the first 45 minute half. 

The second half was a single skit called a Herald. 
The suggestion "how can I be free" was agreed on af- 
ter women's hours was rejected as too confining. Wo- 
man's hours was in the skit though and the entire issue 
was lampooned. It came to an end with the ROD of 

The Experimental Wing is a result of The Commit- 
tee Workshop in San Francisco and as been perform- 
ing one and half years. This is not the group that per- 
formed on the Smothers Brothers Show, and this is the 
reason for the name change. As Cindy Kamler, the 
group's director, explained It, "we want to avoid people 
coming to see The Committee and seeing us. . .we do 
something a little different. We just try to clarify 
it's a different group." The Experimental Wing does 
perform at The Committee Workshop in San Francisco 
every Monday, but other than that "there is no connec- 
tion other than the historical one." 

The Experimental Wing has twenty actors In all. The 
nine members that were here were Hal Taylor, Susan 
Howard, Diane Horowitz, Judy Fisher, George Mathews, 
Terry Day, Tom Brunelle, George Merkle, and Joe Lerer. 
The entire group varies from 21 to 40 and from minister 
to college kids to carnival people. A real cross section. 
Asked why they joined the group, their answers were 
all different but the same. "I found Improvisation, the 
concept, so exciting I Just abandoned everything and got 
Into It." I really dig theater. . .(and) this improv tech- 
nique is a really valid form. . .All you need Is coopera- 
tlon and trust." "I needed a Job. (The pay's not much 
but) It's good for my head (and) the point of anything 
Is to keep grooving." "Looking for something to get 
with that was groovy." 

Asking what their thing was, I again received similar 
answers. "We're not out to preach. . .burn bridges. . . 
change anyone to our way of thinking." "The whole 
point of our whole thing, just to have a good time. . . 
We vary so much there Is no way in the world we 
could all agree on a thought. We can't even agree on 
where to go to eat. . .But like we can get on stage and 
cooperate like hell." "To show the audience fun." 
I asked one why they made fun of the ossueof wo- 
men's hours. "Well in a sense it Is a funny Issue. 
This is one of the first college campuses we've seen 
In a while that still has very strict rules. And you'll 
see In the next couple years they all will change." 
One of them also commented on the FREEDOM ROD 
In the Herald. "The FREEDOM ROD is probably what 
motivates us all. Our sexjial energy is probably what 
makes or breaks society. Its what hangs up the Board 
of Regents, Reagan, and his bunch. The symbolism In 
the Golden Rod is the power of all." 

Commenting on drugs one of them said: "We found 
out we don't need it. . J doubt it would help on stage 
• • Jt Interferes with your mind processes. . .It tends 
to exclude rather than Include (because) there's no 
way someone not on that drug could be on that trip with 

Of the group, fifteen of the actors are on a salary of 
twenty dollars a week and the group Is going broke. They 
get between $150 and $1500 for a show depending on 
where and who for. For the show here they got about 
halfway between the two figures. They love to work 
and aren't "sticklers for money." Just contact them 
at Box 27247 San Francisco. 

What else can be said about them except they're great 
as everyone I've talked to agrees. 

art e.c.-doing your thing 

Joel Davis 

The Experimental College, as most every- 
one knows (or should know) starts January 
12. And one of the most productive and in- 
terestlng courses could well be the one con- 
ducted by Mr. John Solem of the Art De- 

The Info flyer on the Experimental College 
describes Art as a course in which "basic 
art will be focused upon. . .nearly everyone," 
It says, "has some artistic talent, and this 
course will enable one to find and develop 
this talent." 

More Information, however, was forthcom- 
ing from Mr. John Solem himself. "This will 
be a studio course," he explained last Thurs- 
day. "No theory or art history or anything 
like that." The course, he said, will be a 
doing one, a course In which the student will 
come In with whatever talent he or she has 
and "do his thing." 

Although the word "Art" covers just about 

everything, Solem sees the course as con- 
centrating mainly on painting and related 
disciplines. "I'll be there to help or counsel 
anyone who needs it," he said. 

The objectives of the Art course are simply 
stated: to give any interested person In the 
community an opportunity to do his own thing 
In paint, pastel, or collage. 

Solem sees two types of people participating 
In Art E.C. The first type, he said, will be 
"the students on campus with little or no 
previous experience In art classes" who 
are simply Interested In expressing them sel- 
ves through the art media employed in the 
course. "The student will come In, "exclaim- 
ed Solem, "with his own particular Dacx- 
ground and technique" and then go to It. 

The second type Solem expects will be 
the people from the community at large. Does 
he expect a large response from this area? 
"If you ask me there will be a large response 
(from the community) — I'd say, probably 



In discussing the course the conversation 
Inevitably turned to the general philosophy 
of the Experimental College. Solem seemed 
to be more than sympathetic to the concept 
of the E.C., especially as It applied to his 
Art course. However, when the Idea was 
broached that perhaps the E.C. is (or should 
be) filling gaps In the existing CLC curricu- 
lum, Solem was emphatic In his disagree, 
ment. "We're all aware that there are gaps, 
and problems with funding," he said. But he 
did not feel that Art E.C. was either meant 
to or would fill any "gap" In the Art Depart- 
ment's curriculum. Moreover, he stated that 
"I won't conduct this class any differently 
from my regular studio classes," wnicii ob. 
vlously meant that he'll put as much of him- 
self Into Art E.C. as he does Into "Art CLC." 
And if the students who show up on Monday 
nights at 7:30 put their all Into it, Art E.C. 
could have not only Interesting, but perhaps 
even spectacular results.

Decisions! Decisions! 

One of them should be a buying decision 

As a college student, you learn to make 
decisions. One of the most important 
should concern life insurance . . . from 
Aid Association for Lutherans. AAL is 
a fraternalife insurance society for 
Lutherans . . . and that's a big ad- 
vantage to the Lutheran student. 

When it comes to life insurance, 
Lutheran college students get a bar- 
gain. That's because of age and good 
health, and because AAL's rates are 
low to begin with. 

Another reason . . . Lutheran stu- 
dents can have certain guaranteed 
purchase options that assure them of 
being able to buy additional insur- 

ance later on regardless of health. 

AAL representatives (who are Luth- 
eran) serve all 50 states and five prov- 
inces of Canada . . . we're the largest 
fraternal life insurance society in 

Take time to talk to an AAL repre- 
sentative soon. Let him show you the 
advantages of starting a life insurance 
plan at your present age. And have him 
show you how dollars saved witty AAL 
do double-duty . . provide protec- 
tion for you while helping support 
Lutheran benevolent causes. Aid Asso- 
ciation for Lutherans, where there's 
common concern for human worth.

1) the nonnltrogenous and 2) the nitrogenous. 
Marijuana is placed into the first grouping, 
along the nutmeg, because the euphoric 
activity associated with it and produced by 
its use is due to the "nonnltrogenous prin. 
clples" of its chemistry (2). 

Marijuana is produced from the plant 
Cannabis sativa which is a "tall, annual 
weed, sometimes reaching a height of 15 
feet (2)." The plant will grow in almost any 
type of soil and under widely variable cli- 
matic conditions. It is important to note that 
the plant is dioecious, i.e. there are both 
male and female varieties. Differentiation of 
the sexes of the plant is important in that, 
the chemical compounds responsible for the 
euphoric effects of marijuana are contained 
in the resins primarily of the female plant. 
In identifying the sex of the plant, the sta- 
minate (male) plant flowers "are axillary 
and borne in the panicles, wheras the axil- 
lary pistillate (female) flowers are long cat. 
kins (2)." The male plant is generally taller 
than the female plant, and the plants them- 
selves maybe identified prlnciply by the struc- 
tural pattern of the leaves. The leaves are 
generally "large and palmately compound, 
each having five to seven linear-lanceolate 
leaflets, with serrate leaf margins (2)." 

The euphoric principles are concentrated 
in the resin which the female plant produces 
as It ripens, however, the leaves, seeds and 
stems are also used as euphoric agents and 
it is possible that active ingredients may, 
with further research, be attributed to the 
stamlnate plants. The drug may be generally 
found in three grades of preparation. 

The first is bhang (an Indian term) which 
is the least potent and consequently the 
cheapest variety. It is this type of cannabis 
that is most commonly used in the United 
States. Bhang is produced from the "tops 
of uncultivated plants and has a low resin 
content (1)." The cuttings are prepared by 
making a decoction In water or milk and this 
mixture is "either drunk or dried and smok- 
ed (2)." 

Ganja is the second grade of cannabis 
and is derived from the flowering tops of 
selectively cultivated plants and contains 
a greater degree of resin content. Ganja Is 
prepared for use In the same manner as 
bhang and may be either drunk, smoked 
or Incorporated into sweetmeats and eaten. 

The most potent and most expensive var- 
lety of cannabis Is known as charas to the 
Indians and in the Western cultures as hash- 
ish, or in the vernacular as "hash." This 
type of preparation involves the scraping 
and concentration of the resin itself from 
the upper regions of the mature female 
plant. Hashish is the most potent variety 
of the cannabis derivatives and is "5 to 8 
times stronger in effect that the most po- 
tent marijuana regularly available in the 
U.S. (1).» 

The derivatives of cannabis are taken in 
a number of fashions. In this country they 
are generally inhaled in the form of a cig- 
arette or through a pipe, however, in other 
areas of the world they may be ingested "in 
the form of a drink or in foods (1)." 

Since the use of the cannabis derived drugs 
has, within the preceding decade, crept into 
every aspect of Western culture, an increas- 
ed amount of research has been attempted to 
ascertain the active euphoric producing mech- 
anlsms of the herb. 

cannabis usage: 

". . .intoxication. . .is initiated by a 
period of anxiety within 10 to 30 minutes 
. . .in which the user sometimes develops 
fears of death and anxieties of vague 
nature associated with restlessness and 
hyperactivity. . .he begins to feel more 
calm. . .soon develops definite euphoria 
. . .talkative. . .elated, exhilarated. . . 
feeling of lightness of the limbs and 
body. .laughs uncontrollably. . .has 
the impression his conversation is witty 
and brillant. . .may begin to see visual 
hallucinations. . .flashes of light or amor- 
phous forms of vivid color which evolve 
and develop into geometric figures, 
shapes, human faces. . .after a. . .time 
. . .becomes drowsy, falls into dream- 
less sleep and awakens with no physio- 
logic after-effects and what a clear 
memory of what had happened. . .(1)" 
Most available information generally agrees 
with these observations. The effects of smok- 
ing marijuana may last from two to four hours 
and Ingestion may produce a longer period of 
intoxication of from five to twelve hours (1). 
It is often stated that during intoxication 
the senses are heightened and become more 
sensitive to outside stimuli, especially; light, 
colors and music. Verification of this is dif- 
ficult to document, but the frequency with 
which this phenomenon is reported would 
seem to indicate some validity to its occur- 
rence. Several effects of marijuana use, how- 
ever, are well documented. 

The first of these effects is the lost of time 
comprehension. In a recent research project 
conducted by Harvard and Boston Universi- 
ties, a series of time perception test were 
made on a pair of study groups. The groups 
consisted of both individuals experienced and 
non-experienced in the use of marijuana. The 
test concluded that subjects in both groups, 
who had previous to smoking been able to 
judge with fair accuracy a five minute time 
span, often doubled their normal estimates 
of time while under the influence of the drug 


A second documented effect reported by 
this group was a moderate increase in heart 
rate. They reported that in novice users the 
average registered increase inheart rate was 
16 beats per minute, to which they add that, 
during orgasm the increase in heart beats 
per minute is many times this great, they 
did however fall to mention whether or not 
these were also novice orgasms. The group 
also reported that the use of marijuana does 
cause the blood vessels of the white portion 
of the eyes to become dilated and reddened, 
the research team did not, however, find any 
Instances of pupil dilation, which seems to 
contradict a great deal of popular opinion, 
especially where certain law enforcement 
agencies are concerned (1,2, & 5). 

A tremendous amount of material has been 
published regarding the effects of marijuana 
upon the "psychomotor functions and certain 
sensory abilities (1)." The LaGuardia Report 
found that even large doses of marijuana did 
not affect many performance tests or the 
ability to quickly respond to simple stimuli. 
It did find that use of the drug caused an 
unsteadiness of the hand and body and ef- 
fected the reaction time required to answer 
a complex stimuli. The Report also found that 
during the mature stages of the experience 
there was a decline in the ability of indlvi-

Marijuana may not be a one-way ticket to hell as some opponents claim, but 
it's no entree to psychedelic paradixe either. 

Long-range studies now going on may tell us some day just how marijuana really 
affects the body and mind. Until then, three top medical authorities on drugs have 
summarized their views, which can be found in an article in the January Reader's Digest. 

The three doctors — Dana L. Farnsworth of Harvard, Anthony F. Philip of 
Columbia and famed chest surgeon Alton Ochsner of New Orleans ~ agree that while the 
dangers may be somewhat overstated, there are risks in smoking marijuana and it is a 
rare "pot-head" who can escape without harm. 

Moreover Dr. Ochsner, who was one of the first doctors to note the correlation b 
between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, raises the possibility of similar risks among 
marijuana smokers. He sees disturbing parallels between today's marijuana craze and 
the cigarette promotions a few decades ago. 

"At present, no one knows whether smoking pot can cause cancer," he says. 
"What is certain is that the burning of many types of leaves produces carcinogens. 
Marijuana simply has not been in common use in the United States long enough to produce 
the deaths from which statistics are calculated." 

Dr Farnsworth, who serves as chairman of the American Medical Association s 
Council on Mental Health, distinguishes between "casual" pot smokers - those who try it 
out of curiosity' and who constitute more than half of all users - and "problem smokers 
who are preoccupied with the drug to the point of dependency. 

Casual smokers may not suffer any real harm, he says. But many others do suffer 
suffer interference with work and studies, disorientation, confusion or depression. 
Ironically, those most vulnerable to such reactions are people with unstable personalities 
or emotional difficulties — who are most likely to try the drug in the first 


And what of the rewards? Disappointing at best, says Dr. Farnsworth. There 
is no present evidence that, except for a few isolated individuals, pot-smoking can 
increase self-realization or creativity. On the contrary, he says, "With pot, everything 

draws to a halt. " 

One other danger noted by Dr. Farnsworth is the risk that marijuana can lead to 

stronger drugs. While not necessarily so, it has happened. 

Dr. Philip, who heads the Columbia College Counseling Service, also 
distinguishes "recreational" pot smokers from those who are deeply involved. The 
latter, he says, "typically have an intolerable, chronic, low-grade depression and a 
resentful feeling that somehow they have been cheated by life." Their motivation 
for using drugs is not to gain pleasure, but merely to avoid pain. 

Dr. Philip believes that family conflict plays a large role in launching 
youngsters on the drug path. "I haven't seen any kids getting into drugs who have 
not had family problems . " he says . 

It all adds up to a case against marijuana, although many doctors agree 
that present legal penalties for use of the drug are far too harsh. To such opponents 
of stiff punisment, a social approach seems to make more sense than a legal one. 

Dr. Farnsworth puts it this way: The way to solve the drug problem is "by 
helping the young improve their relations with their parents and with society." 

He might have added, "and vice-versa."

"It is difficult to avoid the conclusion 
that the increasing use of marijuana is 
in part related to the fearful threats of 
overpopulation, racial conflict, and nuclear 
war. Conversely, the same threats, may 
indirectly be contributing to the emotional 
campaign against this drug. . .marijuana 
is a natural target as a scapegoat." 
Lester Grinspoon, associate clinical 
professor of psychiatry Harvard 
Medical School 
Tt must be stated at the outset of this 
article that I am, by virtue of being its 
author and by virtue of attempting to pre- 
sent the following data unbiasedly, neither 
condoning nor passing judgment as to the 
legality of the use of marijuana. It is, how- 
ever, my opinion that a truthful examination 
of the properties of Cannabis sativa is both 
in order and needful, if the subject is to be 
placed into its proper perspective and seen 
in such a light as to remove it from the dark 
corners that fear, social prejudice, and mis- 
information have placed it. 

In way of background it might be mentioned 
that the use of cannabis has a long document, 
ed history both as drug producing euphoria 
and as a medicinal agent. As a medicine 
marijuana was prescribed for such ailments 
as: "coughing, fatigue, asthma, delrium tre- 
mens, migrane headaches, and painful men- 
struation (1)." Marijuana was recognized and 
listed as a medicinal agent in Pharmaco- 
peia until 1937, at which time the 1937 Tax 
Act made its use exceeding expensive and 
also at which time the availability and use of 
synthetic drugs began to increase. It m ght 
also be mentioned that a group of French 
writers, namely Baudelaire, Gautier, and 
Dumas pere, formed during the 1850's Le 
Club des Hachichins, the hashish smokers, 
and it has been stated that the influence of 
cannabis is quite evident in their literature 
and also in their personnel histories (1). 
Hallucinogenic organic mater is generally 
recognized as falling into two catagories: 

During the 1940's it was found that these 
active mechanisms were isomers of tetrahy- 
drocannablnal, an organic compound which 
contains variously arranged atoms of car- 
bon, hydrogen, andoxygeninhexacyclicmole- 
cular rings. It will suffice to state that re- 
cent investigation has established that delta- 
1 tetrahydrocannabinol is the primary 

euphoric agent of marijuana. It might be 
noted, however, that there are "about 80 
derivatives of cannabinol (1)." of which some 
are known to play an active role in the eu- 
phoric mechanism and some of which are 
known to have only a passive involvement. 
It might also be noted that some of these 
compounds are unstable and change form, 
some alternating between active and inactive 
stages (2). 

During the last half of the past decade, 
Rafael Mechoulan and Yehiel Gaoni, of the 
Hebrew University in Israel, succeeded in 
synthesizing the primary ingredient of mari- 
juana in the pure form and this may prove 
to be of substantial importance in the further 
interpretation of why marijuana produces the 
effects it does. The chemistry of Cannabis 
sativa is extremely complex and Is at present 
not fully understood. 

The effects of cannabis are generally con- 
fined to the central nervous system of the 
individual. According to recent investiga- 
tions the use of cannabis "does not notice- 
ably affect the gross behavior of rats or 
mice or simple learning in rats. . .in dogs 
it induces a dreamy, somnolent state remi. 
niscent of the last stage of a human high (1)." 

Large intakes of the drug may produce 

vomiting, diarrhea, and a loss of muscular 

control. Doses large enough to cause these 

effects are rarely reached and there are no 

documented reports of a human fatality from 

the use of cannabis. 

Literature, both scientifically documented 

and not, describing the effects of cannabis 
on an individual is both bountiful and volu- 
minous. Walter Bromberg (1934), a psychla- 
trist described in detail the experiences of 

duals Intellectual functioning, however after 
the period of intoxication, performance was 
fouiid to return to a normal level. It was also 
found that memory and verbal facility were 
not impaired during intoxication and that 
under low dosage were often improved (1). 
Other effects of cannabis use include: 
increased frequency and amount of urina- 
tion, dry throat and mouth and a sense of 
hunger, and a slight increase in blood pres- 
sure. A great number of myths have develop- 
ed as to the effects of cannabis on social in- 
volvement, these myths are due in general 
to misunderstanding and misinformation. Re- 
cent data reports (and my five independent 
sources collectively confirm) that: 

1) The use of marijuana does not in itself 
lead to the use of more powerful drugs. 

2) Marijuana does not "incite people to 
aggression and violent criminal behavior 


3) Marijuana does not "stimulate sexual 

desire or power (1)." 

4) Marijuana does not in itself cause a 
moral breakdown, but rather its use is a re- 
suit of a previous moral breakdown. 

5) Types of marijuana smoked in America 
do not in themselves produce lethargy. Long- 
termed use of hashish in the Eastern cul- 
tures may possibly cause lethargy in some 
individuals, but one may also consider the 
socio-economic situation to also be a major 
contributing factor. Studies of American col- 
lege students have shown that "many of 
them had suffered serious conflicts or de- 
pression long before they began to use the 
drug (1)." 

It appears now that a great number of 
researchers have reached the conclusion 
that, "moderate use of mariiuana does not 
produce physical or mental deterioration 
(1)." The British Government stated in a 
report It sponsored in India, during the 1890's, 
comparing the effects of marijuana and Scotch 
whisky that cannabis did not "produce any 
disease or mental or moral damage or that 
it. . .lead to excess (more) than the moderate 

California sent the 
the State legislature 
an official report of 

use of whisky did (1)." A recent study by 
the Washington State Bureau of Motor Ve- 
hicles found that marijuana causes signifi- 
cantly less impairment of driving ability 
than alcohol does (4). 
The University of 
following statement to 
within the context of 
its research: 

"It must be acknowledged that the brief 
duration of action and low potency of 
available marijuana preparations and its 
freedom from the nutritional side ef- 
fects of alcohol do indeed suggest a les- 
ser hazard in the use of marijuana 

The State News of Michigan State Umver- 

sity states: 

"Marijuana is less physically dangerous 
and addictive than alcohol or cigarette 
smoking, both of which enjoy legal sanc- 
tion (4)." 
From the other side, Dr. James L. God- 
dard, former Head of the U.S. Food and Drug 
Administration has said the question is 
"debatable." Before the House Commerce 
Committee, Dr. Goddard is quoted as say- 
ing: "I did not, and I do not condone the use 
of marijuana (4)." Whether we condone the 
use of marijuana is not exptremely impor- 
tant, what is important is, however, that 
we understand its properties and its effects 
and that we recognize these in the light of 
fact rather than In the shadows of fear and

Dear Editor; 

Happy New Yearl Happy New 
Paper! About a year ago there 
was a dream which supplemented 
the Mountclef Echo — the short- 
lived "FRESH AIR" section. 
Since then Fresh Air has con. 
notated and reputated damn near 
anything to damn near every, 
body who experienced the far- 
reaching vibrations which em. 
erged from the funky green house 
on Hillcrest. 

The dream reached, to me, 
its utmost realization in the 
New(s)Paper I just read. Ironi- 
cally enough, it was that short, 
lived supplement which bore out 
the name Fresh Air to a core 
of people who attempted to ex. 
periment a communal living sit. 

Fresh Air soon became a 
dream of a new way of life. 
Now, when the New(s)Paper 
comes out (a long-time coming) 
the core of people seem to be 
going their own way doing their 
own thing. The culmination of 
one dream coincides with the 
cessation of another dream. But 

Fresh Air Is not dead. As the 
world gets smoggler, there are 
certain souls who get stronger 
and decide to breathe their own 
Fresh Air. 

I'd have called this a love 
letter, but there are too many 
unreal connotations to the word 
"love" right now as I look in 
and out and in and out. 

Some people may be rejoicing 
at the death of an opium den, 
crash pad, house of ill repute. 
They are rejoicing at nothing 
but their own guilt-rldden, pre- 
judiced ignorance. Some people 
may be sorrowful at the "death" 
of a passionate experiment. 
There is no need for that. 

Most people probably don't 

know what I'm talking about. 

God Bless You. I hope your 

baby is as beautiful as your 




To those critics of the recent 
edition of the "student weekly 
paper": may I remind them that 
this is your first edition and as 
such an experiment. May I sug. 
gest that these critics join your 
staff and attempt to assist in the 
production of the kind of publi- 
cation which they expect to re. 

I am personally concerned 
about the cost of the last edl. 
tlon, especially the wasted space. 
I had to pay for that borderwork 
and "art" photography and I 
think the price was too high. 

May I suggest that the Decree 
is our literary magazine and I 
believe that it would have a 
place for the "art" also. A 
large majority of the space used 
in this newspaper should have 
been material for the Decree. 
Maybe you want a Decree and not 
a newspaper and If so you have 
taken the wrong job. We could 
still arrange for a "Decree" to 
be published If you want It. 

I publicly volunteer to work on 
your weekly paper — to produce a

Our people have been labelled with Americans of Mexi- 
can descent, Spanish-Americans, citizens with Spanish 
surnames, and of course, the term which is currently 
in vogue: Mexican-American. All these terms have one 
thing in common, these are labels created by Anglos 
and imposed upon us by Anglos. Because these terms 
were imposed upon us, we must seek a new name for 
ourselves. Whatever It is, IT MUST BE OUR OWN

Mexican-American or Chicano? 

Anthony I. Fernandez 
156 Lora Lane 
Fillmore, Calif. 


Before we begin our examination of the term Mexi- 
can-American it is Interesting to note how the anglo 
applies labels to peoples of color In this country. The 
Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos, Puerto Rlcans and of course 
Blacks are never referred to as Americans, but as Chi- 
nese Americans, Japanese Americans, etc. — They are 
accepted as Americans. To gain an insight into the 
contradictions that make up the Anglo mind we only 
have to look at how the foreigners who came to the new 
world called themselves Americans and in turn labelled 
the indlgeneous peoples with the name of a country on 
the other side of the globe. 

Let us analyze the term Mexican-American: The 
term Is repulsive to us for the two reasons already 
mentioned. It was Imposed upon us and it is a racist 
designation. But there Is a third reason. The hyphena. 
tion implies that we are immigrants. This Is totally 
erroneous. We simply do not fit into the category of 
immigrant because we are indigenous to the Southwest. 

The first permanent settlements in what is now the 
U. S, were made by Spanish and meztlso before the pil- 
grims (refugees). The descendants of these pioneers 
still live in New Mexico. We crossed no oceans to 
come here. 

The term Mexican or Mexicano would be totally 
acceptable but for reasons that will be mentioned it is 
only partially acceptable. The term implies that we are 
citizens of the Republic of Mexico. This we are not. We 
are not Mexican nationals. That Is to say we are not 

politically Mexican, but we are definitely Mexican ra- 
cially. The blood that flows In our veins is Mexican 
blood. Linguistically, and to varying degrees culturally 
we are just as Mexican as a citizen of the Republic. 
However, the political reality differentiates us from the 
Mexican national. 

Our partial rejection of the Mexican does not mean we 
accept the phrase, "of Mexican descent". This phrase 
is repulsive to us because it implies a condescending to 
something else. This something else apparently means 
Americans. THIS IS TOTALLY ERRONEOUS. Slncethis 
implies that we were not Americans to begin with. All 
the people of South, Central and North America are Ameri- 
cans. Especially the Indio and meztlso peoples. It is the 
whites that should be referred to as Americans of Euro- 
pean descent. We are still Mexican, but our reality 
is that we are not living in the Republic of Mexico but 
in what is known as the U.S.A. 

We embrace the term, Chicano for many reasons. The 
most Important reason is that Chicano Is our own crea- 
tion. Here lies the beauty of Chicano. It is not the pro- 
duct of some Anglo sociologist, nor Is It an apologetic 
term for what we are but it is our name born in the 
street of our barrios. 

When we choose to call ourselves Chlcanos and not 
"Mexican-Americans" we are taking a step towards be- 
coming a free people. A free people determines Its 
own name. Have our people determined this or has 
the Anglo? 

If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be 

sufficient evidence 

to convict you?

8 tt*****, 

If this wasn't so serious, I'd laugh. 

In case the importance and yet ludicrousness of these 
past developments concerning women's hours have con- 
fused you— may I briefly outline them. 

1. In Senate bill No. 3 passed on Oct. 30, which was to 
provide ways and means for resolving the question of 
college governance, sec No. 4 stated that "until the 
Commission has resolved its policy of governance, 
the rules pertaining to dormitory hours are suspended. 
President Olson agreed to this and stated in an address 
to the Senate on Oct. 30 that he had a feeling of basi- 
cally toward the bill. 

2. in the Governance Commission a resolution was 
passed on Nov. 8, placing the first task of the Com mis- 
sion to be a defining of roles of the segments within 
the college and an investigation of the governance of the 

3. As a member, though not a voting member, of the 
Commission, President Olson continually brought up the 
issue of hours, demanding that it be solved first. 

4. in reaction to these pressures, the Commission 
requested the Board of Regents to continue the suspen- 
sion of hours. 

5. No students were present when Dr. Olson present- 
ed this request and his request that hours be reinstated, 
to the Board of Regents. The Board recommended that 
hours be reinstated. 

6. in the Governance Commission, this recommen. 
dation with the amendment of self-determinlng hours 
for Junior and Senior women was passed. A primary 
reason for some of the student yes-votes was that they 
wished the matter to be taken out of the Commission 
because it was hindering the priority task of outlining 
college governance. Two negative votes were cast be- 
cause the students felt that "in loco parentis" had no 
place on any campus, that hours for Freshman ana 
Sophomores are no more just than hours had been for 
Juniors and Seniors, and that student conduct was a 
matter that should be primarily under student jurlsdlc- 

7. in reacion to the reinstatement of hours for Fresh, 
man and Sophomore women, the Senate passed resolu- 
tion "12 in which the President's action was viewed 
as inconsistent with his previous statements and with 
the guidelines of the Commission in that the priority 
task had not been completed nor a report issued. The 
Senate therefore urged women to consider all hours 
suspended and referred to the College committee on 
Student Conduct the issue of women's hours, providing 
that the findings of that Committee are in line with 
the forthcoming politlces from the Commission. 

8. President Olson's subsequent chapel lecture on 

Dec. 9 warned students of possible consequences for 
following the Senate's resolution, admonished students 
not to believe everything that they heard, and conclud- 
ed with an assurance of the love, concern and well 
meaning on the part of the administration for the stu- 

There are the basic facts, but aren't you wondering 
now like me why the term "unilateral" is applied to 
students whenever we take our right seriously, yet 
never seems to come into the charges when an admin- 
istrative official carries our his personal beliefs in 
like manner. I've been wondering why both sides seem 
to be playing a dare-game. I've been wondering why 
the administration is called that — funny how defini- 
tions change in use. I've been wondering what all those 
highminded Ideals like "love of truth and freedom" 
on our seal mean. I've been wondering if everyone 
realizes that this issue could determine our future 
rights and powers as individuals and a group on this 
campus. And now I've just been wondering, since I've 
been told it's all for my own good, when do I get my 
brownie button and gold star. (And I promise I won't 
listen to any naughty people or accept rides from

e> Listen People! 

Read on, think on, fellow students. Replace 
the general reference of "man" with that of 
"administration." Reopen, refresh your 
minds with the controversial (!) topic of hours. 
Review the reasonabele justification of their 
position by the "en loco parentis" theory. 

If you will ponder the matter carefully, 
you will find that the position and result- 
ing administrative actions reek of reason. 

Students simply do not stop to consider 
the tremendous sacrifices that the adminis- 
tration had to make concerning the public 
image of our institution by compromising a 
modified women's hours system. These sac» 
rifices were reasonably paramount to any 
sacrifices which women students would pos- 
sibly make In relation to the hours system. 
Many students do not realize or appreciate 
the generosity of the administration in grant- 
ing rights of self-determination to the Senior 
and Junior women and the one hour weekday 
limit extension for Sophomore and Fresh- 
man women. The administration even went 
so far as to concede to grace periods, late 
leaves and the special security provision. 

These are all generous concessions on the 
part of the administration , aren't they? Well at 
least from the administrations point of view 
they were. But brothers and sisters, If you 
believe In this type of "reasoning," I must 
ask you, where is your head? 

A majority of CLC students, male and 
female, are quite disillusioned with these 
so-called processes of reason. Processes 
which, through compromise, are nullifying, 
denouncing, and destroying the very prin- 
ciples of the abolishment of hours. One of 
the major objections to hours was that it 
was discriminatory to women. The hours 
schedule has now become a specialized type 
of discrimination against the Sophomore 
and Freshmen women. Why? Is It due to a 
supposed lack of maturity on our part? Is 
it because we do not have enough sense to 
know how to plan the harmony of social life 
amd intellectual expansion without flunking 
out of our classes or getting raped? 

The majority of the, women on this campus 
have already been allowed to exercise free- 
dom in this area. The rest have not. Since 
these undeveloped people have already come 
away from home to college, it is about time 
tnat they learn to plan their lives, to take on 
the responsibility of Increased freedom which 
will force them to develop In this area. The 
whole idea of coming away to college Is to 
be on your own — that fabulous taste of an In- 
dependent life; It Is not to have self-deter- 
mination granted to students as a privilege

I have of late, 
But wherefore I know not, 
Lost all my mirth. 

when it should be a Right. 

It is hard to learn anything until you do 
it yourself; making your own decisions. Many 
youths are Immature because they have never 
been given the chance to mature — there are 
too many adults trying to live their lives 
for them. Most girls never had hours un- 
der their parents care; why should they 
here? Some girls did have enforced hours 
under their parents; It Is the moral obli- 
gation of the college to give these women 
a chance to make their own futures. 

The college has another "reason" for 
maintaining hours for the underclasswom- 
en: The supposed deterioration of our moral 
standards; hence the threat of losing the 
monetary support of various Christian con- 
gregatlons. What deterioration of values? 
Progressive colleges all over the nation 
are switching to an open hours program 
without resulting moral complications. So 
tell me, by what per cent did pregnancies 
among unmarried women students increase 
during our brief period of freedom? What 

was the increase in serious infractions of 
residence hall rules? If anything, the ma- 
jority of women students either remained 
in their same patterns or became more 

I would suggest that the image-consclous 
CLC administration abolish enforced hours 
and in Its stead establish a system of rec 
ommended hours, maintaining the security 
provisions. This would allow our college 
to make the transition from the elemen- 
tary "demerit system" with all It's nega- 
tive trimmings which beg for disobedience 
to a more positive and mature attitude of an 
honor system. 

Dear Administration— listen and experi- 
ment with these proposals which are sup- 
ported by student action. 

Fellow women— become actively Involved 
in supporting this program — it is for your 
benefit. We are obliged to take action. Defend 
your principles. You have heard from both 
sides of view; do what Is right and true In 
your mind, make your decision and support it. 

"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and 
remember what peace there may be in si- 
lence. As far as possible without surrender 
be on good terms with all persons. Speak 
your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to 
others, even the dull and ignorant; they too 
have their story." 

— Desiderata 
Please take action.

There are plenty of kids who care about 
what's going on at CLC, but they will not 
support their ideas and beliefs with actions 
for fear of being hassled. I tried to stim- 
ulate the student body Into positive action 
concerning discriminatory hours regulations 
through publication of an open letter to the 
students and administration. 

I went to pick up my master article from 
central' service, expecting them to be fin- 
ished, but apparently I wasn't really expect- 
ed: I was Informed that all potentially con- 
troversial material had to meet THE DEAM's 
approval before publication. My article had 
been sent to HIS office and had not yet 
returned. I bee-lined it to THE DEAN's 
office to resolve the mystery, BAD news: 
I would have to see THE DEAN person- 
ally. (Everybody wears the Big Smile) THE 
DEAN was extremely polite, kind, fatherly, 
et cetera. You see, the whole mess was a 
mistake. THE DEAN had skimmed and ap- 
proved my article shortly after he received 
it, but strangely enough, someone happened 
to come In and question THE DEAN con- 
cerning "proper use of central services." 
Big Conference, but no decisions finalized. 
Sounds ltke-what? 

Draw your own conclusions. The most 
significant impression was the unending re- 
assurance that my article was not detained 
for controverslallty but the "problem" of 
proper use of central services by students.

Win One, 

Lose One 

The CLC mat men, just off the Christmas 
vacation, turned in an impressive win over 
Claremont College Tuesday, January 6. The 
Kingsmen rallied for 5 pins, 2 decisions and 
2 forfeits in downing Claremont 41-5. Rod 
Nishura of Claremont turned in the 5 points 
as he pinned CLC's Ken McMillen in the 
118 pound class. Rubalacava andQuentmeyer 
of CLC won on forfeits at 126 and 134 lbs., 
respectively. Team Captain Chuck LaGamma 
gave CLC its first pin and was followed 
with pins by Sowers, Lee, Lazaga, and 
Kelly. Wright and Standerfer both won on 

Last Friday night the tables were turned 
by the Biola Eagles. The Eagles came to 
CLC with a 7-0 record and, never having 
defeated the Kingsmen before, were out for 
the win. The Kingsmen were wrestling with, 
out Rubalacava and Sowers, who were out 
with illness and injury. 

Kingsmen Basketball 


By Frank Nausin 

Last quarter, while most of us were pre- 
paring for final exams, the Kingsmen basket- 
ball team opened its season. Traveling to 
Redlands, for the Redlands tournament, the 
Kingsmen were able to win one out of three 
and finish in sixth place In the tournament. 
In the first game they suffered a 90 to 61 
defeat at the hands: of a powerful Azusa 
Pacific team. On Friday night a come from 
behind effort gave them a 79 to 63 win. 
Saturday night the Kingsmen dropped the 
Consolation game to a tough Pasadena ball 

Following the tournament and finals the 
team journeyed to the cold climate of Alaska 
to battle the Alaskians. The first game 
found the Kingsmen shooting as cold as the 
weather outside and the Kingsmen went down 
to defeat by the score of 86 to 77. The 
second night, however, proved to be a differ- 
ent story using an effective stall the Kings- 
men defeated the Alaskans 59 to 57. The 
team then moved to Tacoma to play our sister 
college Pacific Lutheran University. The 
young Kingsmen hustled to a 36-36 halftime 
score but with about five minutes left in the 
game succumbed to the bigger and more 
experienced Knights, 73 to 62. 

Returning from vacation the Kingsmen 
again hit the road. They met the Pomona 
Sagehens at Pomona. Led by Junior guard 
Tim Iverson's 13 pts. and Sophomore Wayne 
Erickson's 14 pts., the Kingsmen gave them 
a real run for the money, finally losing 52 
to 51. This weekend our weary travelers 
blew into Phoenix and were nearly blown 
back out again by the hot shooting Ante- 
lopes, 104 to 69. The Antelopes shot a 
sizzling 55 per cent from the floor and 
although the Kingsmen shot 41 per cent 
themselves it was not nearly enough. Again 
the Kingsmen were lead by Tim Iverson with 
19 pts. and by Clay Hitchcock's 14 pts., 
freshman Rich Gerding chipped in 8 pts. 
On Saturday the team flew into San Diego to 
take on arch rival Cal Western. They ran 
into another hot shooting aggregation and 
came out on the short end of a 92 to 76 
score. Iverson had his best night of the 
season with 27 pts., Gerding chipped in 
with 13 pts., soph Ed Stillian threw in 9 
pts., and Erickson managed 8 pts. The 
Westerners shot a blistering 62 per cent 
from the floor, and the Kingsmen shot a 
very respectable 48 per cent. 

Coach Robert Campbell is again plagued 
this year with a young team. With only one 
senior, in the person of Chris Elkins, and 
three juniors, Iverson, Don Hossler, and 
Tim Tobin the Kingsmen are relatively 
inexperienced. The Kingsmen are also trou. 
bled by lack of size, something which is not 
uncommon to C.L.C. basketball. Recently 
the team has gotten good efforts out of a good 
crop of freshmen such as, Rich Gerding, 
Clay Hitchcock, and John Siemens. The 
success of the team hinges on how fast these 
and other young players can mature, in order 
to give bench strength to the nucleus of 
experienced players. Coach Campbell has 
said he is pleased with the attitude of the 
team and many of their games evidence 
this. There has not been a game this year 
that the team need be ashamed of. They 
have hustled and given their best; some- 
times your best is just not good enough. 
The frosh team, under the tutalage of 
Bob Pitman has won 2 while losing 3. 
They have been lead by Rich Gerding and 
Clay Hitchcock in scoring and have gotten 
good efforts out.of Reg Stoner, Byron Calos, 
and Pat Daley. The frosh recently beat 
Pomona, to avenge an earlier defeat in the 
Pasadena tourney, 58 to 55. They lost this 
weekend to Cal Western 85 to 54, leading 
scorers in this game were Daley with 16 
pts., Calos with 14 pts., and the fine re- 
bounding work of Reg Stoner, who ended the 
game with 13 rebounds. The frosh were 
hindered by the absence of Rich Gerding, 
who missed the game because of poor con- 
nections in transportation. 

The Kingsmen record now stands at 2 wins 
and 7 losses. The Kingsmen look to improve 
that record this week against Westmont 
College on Tuesday, in Santa Barbara, and 
then come home, finally, for their first 
home games of the season, against Biola 
and Pasadena Colleges. The Kingsmen are 
better than their record indicates, I look 
for the young, hustling Kingsmen to bust 
loose any time, this week could be the 
time. Last Friday night the Wrestling team 
received tremendous support. Let us the 
students of C.L.C. do the same for the 
basketball team. A young team can rise to 
big things with a lot of cheering behind 
them, give them your support I do not think 
they will disappoint you. 

The match began with Biola pinning Mc- 
Millen at 118 pounds and Haines at 126 
pounds. At 134 lbs., LaGamma wrestled one 
of his finest matches as he won a convincing 
12*4 decision over Brandt of Biola. The 
Eagles came back with a 4-2 decision over 
CLC's Tim Pinkney. In the 150 lb. class 
Ken Wright of CLC scored a quick five 
points and went on to win 5-0 over his op- 
ponent. Biola roared back with a pin in the 
158 lb. division and a default In the 167 
lb. class. In that match Adrian Lee suf- 
fered an arm Injury and was unable to go 
on. CLC's Ted Lazaga was quickly pinned 
by Mike Fisher of Biola. Fisher Is a defend- 
ing District Champion and placed high In 
the Nationals last year. Biola elected to 
forfeit the last two matches, making the final 
score Biola 28, CLC 16. 

The King_smen are now 1-2-1 on the sea- 

son. In the next home match the Kingsmen 
meet UCSB, Wednesday, January 21.

There's no doubt that Red China today 
is jne of the world powers. It is unfortunate 
that many Americans do not have a good 
understanding of that world. To provide an 
opportunity for better understanding, 
several California Lutheran College depart- 
ments are offering courses to provide more 
information and understanding. 
Dr. Edward C. Tseng, Chairman of CLC's 
Political Science Department, is offering 
courses on governments in the Far East, 
particularly Red China. In these courses 
problems facing both Chinas are dis- 

As a part of the course students will 
join Dr. Tseng in a tour of the Orient 
this summer. Departing June 18, they will 
go on a 24 day tour to Japan, Formosa, the 
Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore 
and Honolulu. Course credits are available. 

The tour cost of $1390 per person includes 
the cost of tuition for two courses. Tour 
membership is rapidly filling. Anyone In- 
te rested should contact Dr. Tseng as soon 
as possible. Phone: (805)495-2181, ext. 179. 
•This tour is being conducted under the as- 
sumption that the best learning comes with 
experiencing the situation. 

Dr. Tseng is a recognized authority on Far 
Eastern and International affairs. Born in 
China, Dr. Tseng speaks Chinese and 
English fluently. He received his early edu- 
cation in China and came to this country 
when his homeland fell under Communist 
control. While in the U.S., he earned a Ph.D. 
degree in Far Eastern and International 



By Miss B. Moore 
The Senior Recital is a perfor- 
mance to be given by each music 
major in his senior year, demon- 
strating his capabilities in his 
major field of study. Last Sun- 
day, January 18th, organist Paul 
Torgersen presented his hour 
performance in the gym. The af- 
fair attended by assorted rela- 
tives, music students, faculty, 
administrators, etc., numbered 
approximately two hundred peo- 
This review serves merely 

to present my impressions of 
Paul's performance. 

Paul began his program with 
the "Fantasia In Eco, Movendo 
Un Registro" by A. Banchieri 
and foUowed it with the "Fugue 
in A Minor" by Cernohorsky. 
The "fugue" was executed nice- 
ly. The phrasing was clear and 
distinct and the piece seemed to 
progress at a nicely paced tem- 
po. The "Fantasia" was perform- 
ed well but in places the flow was 
interrupted and the interaction of 
the voices was not distinct. Paul 
then played three chorale pre- 

Dr. Tseng worked for many years at the 
U. N. and has taught at several leading 
American colleges. He is a respected scho- 
lar in his field and a much sought after 
speaker. Through his family, Dr. Tseng has 
come into contact with a number of prom- 
inent Asian political leaders. These con- 
tacts have further enhanced his understand- 
ing of the Far East. 

ludes on "In Dulci Jubilo" by 
Buxtehude, J.S. Bach and H. Sch- 
roeder, respectively, which were 
generally well done. A spirited 
but reserved performance of the 
'^Concerto in A Minor" by Vival- 
di, during which only rarely was 
the tempo uneven, concluded the 
first part of the program. The 
audience appreciatively acknow- 
ledged the first section of the 
program. An intermission of 
about fifteen minutes followed. 
I found the second part of the 
program to be more enjoyable 
than the first and It seemed to 
me Paul himself enjoyed the 
second half more. There was 
more room for expression dur- 
lng the second half of the pro- 
gram and Paul amply took ad- 
vantage of the opportunity. "L 
'Ange A La Trompette" and 
"Adagio" seemed to create a 
change of perspective which was 
both appropriate and needed. I 
especially enjoyed the "Adagio" 
which was carefully and beauti- 
fully done. Paul ended his recital 
with "Tocatta in F Major" by 
J.S. Bach and was very well re- 
ceived by the audience.

Experimental Drugs (Class) 

The second meeting of the drug class took place on Monday, 
Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m. In room E-l. The first one is not worth 
noting except for the fact that it took place one week earlier. 
Like most new classes, it opened with an introduction which was 
at least relevant to the class. Most introductions are a boring 
monologue consisting of effete (there's that magic word, Agnew 
fans) contagion enterprising the new quarter. So much for that. 

This week's topic consisted of the "hard narcotics." Mostly 
opium, Morphine and Heroin, plus a little sideshow of Cocaine. 
Next week we will be listening adroitly to the lecture on de- 
pressant drugs and sleep-inducing drugs. One must learn the 
art of listening skillfully In Mr. Wolf's class because he goes 
over so much Information that most people have never heard of, 
and he does It with amazing ease. 

The essentials of Monday's talk, (and by the way, you are allowed 
to ask questions which is an immense help) was Opium and 
Heroin. Opium is derived from the Papaver Sonaniferum plant, 
which in basic Latin means sleep-producing. Morphine is deri- 
ved from opium, and is the "most effective pain-rellever you 
can buy" on the black market or with a prescription. Heroin 
can be taken either through sniffing (a practice not recommended 
(nor or any of these) since it tends to dry up the sinus cavatles.), 
tablet form, or intravenously. Intravenously is definitely the most 
dangerous. There is a high risk of Infection, especially if the 
bloodvein Is missed. The "serum" Is injected into the muscle, 
where it lies dormant except for the fact that it produces a seri- 
ous infection. Heroin is colorless, and has a metallic sweet taste.

"Themes of Our Times" 

A collection of paintings by Carlisle Cooper is presently being 
exhibited in the CUB. Mr. Cooper began his artistic career as the 
author of the Chicago Tribune Daniel Boone cartoon strip. He pre- 
sently teaches art at Ventura College, and has exhibited paintings 
in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, and locally. 

The paintings in the CUB were done over the past few years. 
The artist did not plan out each painting, since, according to Mr. 
Cooper, planning kills spontenelty; Some of the paintings reflect 
this. The themes of the paintings are basic and are themes of all 
times, as well as of our times, as the title of the exhibition states. 
Themes of war, racial violence, religion, and the emergence of 
technology and new methods of discovery are apparent. All of these 
evolve around the central theme of the individual's place in society 
today. According to the artist, this computerized and technological 
era Is the setting in which man's soul-psyche must remain unchanged 
and individualistic. Art's important role is to reveal man's soul- 
psyche to himself. Does Mr. Cooper's work fill this role? 



Among the collection of approximately fifty paintings, there is 
a series of three Bride paintings, symbolizing the Trinity, which are 
very interesting. In these paintings, the artist Is attempting to tie 
together outer space, (the round objects depicting planets) and the 
inner space in the mind, seen in the nuns. The limitlessness of outer 
space cannot be allowed to overwhelm man to the extent that he loses 
touch with himself; inner reflection is necessary. In these paintings, 
Mr. Cooper seems to succeed in his goal, but only after their meaning 
is explained. 

Another painting which is a mixture of oil and collage, is entitled 
"Rap Brown." It deals with the confused racial situation of today. 
Neither a pro nor con opinion is dominant, and the painting is more 
of a statement. Mr. Cooper commented that he wanted to portray 
an equal balance of this outstanding black military leader. This is 
certainly a revelation of man's soul-psyche. 

"Homo Sapiens" is another Interesting painting which deals with 
the effect of the venture into space on man's philosophical thought. 
"In the beginning. . . .God" and the words "Being being being" are 
prominant on the canvas and give clues to the upsetting complica- 
tions which man must face in this age of technology. 

The purpose of this poll Is to provide information concerning 
the viewpoints of the CLC students concerning women's hours. 
Questions on the poll were not meant to be leading or biased. 
Unfortunately, several students attacked us, as if we were trying 
to change the college policy. We would like it to be known that we 
were trying to get an honest cross-section of opinion and we were 
not trying to change the policy of this college. 

Two hundred and forty-four polls were received: 148 women 
and 96 men. 

One of the questions asked, was, "Do you feel that the major, 
ity of women students at CLC are mature enough to determine 
their own hours?" The answers received were: 
Men Yes 

Freshman 30 

Sophomores 22 

Juniors 11 

Seniors 13 

Fifth Year 2 

Women 3g 

Sophomores 25 

Juniors 18 

Seniors 8 

Another question was: "Should hours be uniform for men and 
women?" The answers were: 

Seniors i 

Our next question was, "What kind of an hours system would 
you suggest, if any?" One hundred and twenty-two students sug- 
gested no hours; 63 freshmen, thirty sophomores, 15 juniors, 13 
seniors and 1 fifth year student. Thirteen students are satisfied 
with the hours system now in effect, of which four were sophomores 
two were juniors and three were seniors. Other suggestions were: 
Nine students suggested hours for all freshmen, they were 2 sopho- 
mores, 2 juniors, 4 seniors and 1 fifth year. Twenty students think 
all first quarter freshmen students should have hours and no 
hours after the first quarter; they were 10 freshmen, 4 sophomores 
4 juniors and 2 seniors. One sophomore, 1 junior and 3 seniors 
feel that only freshmen girls should have hours. One freshmam. 4 
sophomores, 1 junior and 2 seniors said only first quarter fresh 
man girls need hours. Four students; 2 freshmen, 1 junior and 1 
senior feel all freshmen and sophomores need hours. One fresh, 
man and one senior said that all women need hours. Eight people, 
6 freshmen and 2 sophomores felt that there should be hours on 
weekdays but none of weekends. Nine freshmen, 2 sophomores and 
1 junior said hours should be determined by the daughter and 
her parents. One sophomore said that women's hours should be 
determined by grand point average. A few other suggestions were: 
"Having hours to suit each woman"; "men should be in by 7 p.m. 
with all lights out and tucked in, women in by 6:30 p.m. with all 
lights out and tucked in with the punishment for coming in late 
being no whipped cream on their hot chocolate;" "hours for 
freshmen women of 12:30 and 3:00;" "only for men— 9:30 7 days 
a week, 6 on holidays and 5:30 on Christian holidays;" "a guide- 
line for freshmen but not absolute;" "hours for immature girls;" 
"signing out in the room and calling if can't be in on time," "de- 
















termined by the parents after first quarter;" and "a random sys- 
tem with lottery numbers being drawn out of a sterile bowl, girls 
whose birthdays are drawn first are more likely to be made to 
come in earliest and those with numbers over 250 need not come 
in all night." 

We had a question that was only for the men — "Why or why not 
do you think women's hours concern you?" Sixty-three men 
stated it did concern them and twenty-two felt it did not. Some of the 
reasons were: "In the context of 'living in a community' these 
are my sisters and they shouldn't be treated as my baby sisters. 
It also sickens me that those people *administ rating' this school 
feel that hours are necessary." "An institution which professes 
individualism in Its founding philosophy can hardly support 
this dualistlc absurdity called women's hours." "An adminis- 
tration should never control the morals of an individual." 
"It they expect me to die to free S, Vietnam, why can't I speak out 
about freeing people in the U.S.A." "Women are people, too, 
contrary to 2nd century belief." "Yes, because I have a woman!" 
"The freedom of any part of humanity should concern all man. 
kind." "Women's hours are just a forerunner to the needed 
reforms which administration has blocked." "Because I'm the 
wolf man and at 12:01 I go crazy and rape girls. I don't want to 
have that privilege taken from me." "Because I am a con. 
cerned male." 

On the other side: "Because I'm not a girl." «*Who am I to 
say when the women should be in." "The students should comply 
with the rules set down at least for the remainder of the year." 
"Hours don't mean anything to me because most of the girls here 
are small time anyway, but I think they shouldn't be discrimi. 
nated against." 

We then asked what was thought of the hours system now in 
effect. Fourteen freshmen agreed with it, 95 disagreed; 4 sopho- 
mores agreed with it, 49 disagreed; 8 juniors agreed with it, 
29 disagreed with it, 11 seniors agreed with it, 20 disagreed 
with it and 1 fifth year disagreed with it. Some comments 
about this system were: "It's a denial of the women's civil 
liberties." "It's much like winning a battle, progress is made; 
but the ideals which you are fighting for are still at stake." 
•It's hard to draw a line as so, but a line must be drawn." 
"Not much. It's just an attempt on his (Pres. Olson) part to 
satisfy both the Regents and the students at the expense of the 
younger women. Compromise, compromise, compromise ..." 
"It's a step in the right direction, but still it does discriminate 
against sophomores and freshmen women." 

Next we asked the students what they thought the reason for 
hours is. They answered as follows: 
Reason Number of Students 

Protection and control of women by the college 77 

Parent pacification 35 

Sexual activity 31 

No apparent reason 28 

Adjustment to academic responsibility 26

By Herouy Emmanuel 

California Lutheran College has a fine 
motto, Love of Christ, Truth and Freedom. 
We the students want to see our college live 
up to its motto. We are concerned with the 
superfluous Issue that threatens to split the 
college. The issue concerns the "freedom" 
clause of the motto. 

The issue of dorm hours Is straining the 
relationship between certain groups for and 
against the dorm hours. Looking at dorm 
hours we just don't understand where they 
should come in. Why not be fair to the women 
and give them equal treatment as the men? 
If the administration really wanted to be fair 
on the basis of sex, then have hours for both 
men and women or discard the hours com- 
pletely. The stand of the administration, we 
feel, is one of discrimination against the 
fairer sex. In the eyes of the administration, 
the freshmen and sophomore "girls" are not 
mature enough to be given the freedom of 

Another reason that could be levied would 
be that the administration thinks that certain 
immoral activities may occur if hours don't 
exist. Well, let's explain again as wehavebe- 
fore that the certain "immoral activities" 
can occur at any time. 

Yet a third reason might be that of security 
precautions— of complications arising due to 
the locking and the unlocking of the doors at 
night. Let's hope that if this last reason Is 
the only one for the presence of hours, that 
some agreement will be reached between the 
women and the guards. 

Other than that the administration must 
see that Imposing restrictions and hampering 
freedom on any basis, sex and otherwise, 
results In making the hampered feel treated 
like immature persons. By imposing restric 
tions upon us, we feel that the CLC adminis- 
tration lias seen us not as men and women but 
as irresponsible boys and girls. We are In 
college now, In an academic community and 
we want to be given full status in the freedom 
of movement. 

Nevertheless, it's nice to hear the words 


"We love you" from the president of the col- 
lege — but we feel that in an academic cominun. 
Ity love towards others means also respect 
for one another and we would feel similarly 
disposed towards the administration if our in- 
dividual rights were respected. 

Looking around the United States, we can 
see that dorm hours Is a dead question in a 
great many universities and colleges. We feel 
we are unnecessarily lagging behind. 

May I be allowed to extend a plea to all 
Junior and Senior women who are liberated 
to help the freshmen and sophomores In 
their liberation struggle. May I also request 
the bodies of administration who imposed 
hours upon us to give their stand on the is. 
sue, a real, meaningful look. We are not 
children but wo are young people wno want 
these utterly childish rules regarding dorm 
hours to be immediately done away with. We 
want to feel in the midst of the (Ides of the 
other universities and colleges which are 
making other trends. We believe lnour motto 
of Love of Christ, Truth and Freedom and 
we would like our motto to be lived-up-to.

Re i tan 




... the university as we have known it 
may not survive. 

I say "as we have known it." How? As a 
despotism. As a creature of the state." 
As a place where neither faculty nor stu. 
dents — who alone constitute the organization 
into a university — have control over its most 
general policy. As a place where adminis- 
trative practices that would no longer be 
countenanced in business are enshrined and 
elaborated. As a place where PR in the 
worst sense is practiced to the limit: where, 
under the canopy of the highest high-flown 
statements, commencement oratory and effu- 
sion of lofty sentiments, clothed in semi- 
sacerdotal, semi-medieval cloak of monastic 
tradition, gowns, "degrees," scepters of 
office, hierarchies of honorable titles, free- 
dom is fettered and honor suborned. It is 
not just the badness of these practices, but 
their badness in the context of the virtues 
celebrated and claimed, that gives the pro- 
test, like Luther's, its burning quality, its 
and force. 
And it is precisely this threat— the threat 
of deep, far-reaching and long-needed change 
— that makes the current "administrators" 
pursue so immorally and justify so feebly 
their "morality of fear"— the morality that 
justifies their present deviousness in terms 
of "preserving a valuable institution"— 
which they are by their deviousness des- 
troying while it stands. 

— John R. Seeley 

Harsh words? Perhaps. But the truth, at 
least lor students, is unnustakeable. Specifi. 
cally, then, what is our perspective 

We demand a complete re-allocation of 
policy - making power, redistributing such 
power among the rightful and traditional 
executors ol it, the students and the facub 
When the .administration ol a college as- 
similates forcibly the traditional prero 
tives associated with the faculty and stu- 
dents, it is a sign that they have gone 
beyond their proper role, which is to "expe- 
dite the essential academic business of 
teaching and learning . . . When the admin- 
istration becomes the dominant force in 
the community ... it is a sign that extra- 
mural powers are in control . . . and the 
administration is their agent." (Paul Good- 
man, "Thoughts on Berkeley") At Calif, 
ornia Lutheran College we make direct ref- 
erence to the extra-mural authority of Church 
and State; we regard such an authority base 
as illegitimate. 

It is at this point, when the administra- 
Hon assumes such a role unchallenged, 
academic and social freedoms are com- 
promised and rendered subordinate to out- 
side considerations. Ultimately, the student 
owes allegiance solely to those forms of 
authority in which he has participated In 
creating, and there can be NO form of 
authority which can legitimately stand be-

A positive role is thus commanded of us, 
for it is we who must live with our words 
and actions. In order to comprehend the 
manner in which we envision this role, 
one must understand that we have analyti- 
cally scrutinized the philosophy and history 
of higher education, the realm of Ideas, 
and have tried to apply our findings to our 
own situation. 

Current "disciplinary channels" are flex- 
ible only in the sense that they are Imposed 
arbitrarily and without concern for due pro- 
cess. It is also valid that many, if not 
most, disciplinary decisions violate the legal 
principle of double jeopardy and do, in fact, 
violate the student's rights as guaranteed 
under the Constitution of the United States 
and as reaffirmed by the Supreme Court. 
Students have rejected the concept of "in 
loco parentis" by which our extra-curricular 
life is ordered from without and which 
attempts to appoint administrators as our 
"moral guardians." The resultant interpre- 
tation of the so-called Christian ethic of 
conduct, arbitrarily imposed, has sanctioned 
any number of absurdly restrictive policies 
regulating hours, intervisitation, sex, re- 
quired curricula, off-campus housing, poli- 
tical expression, student government, etc. 
Any such interpretation is inherently res- 
trictive of the individual's freedom of con- 

It is the right of the student to be free 
from such social restrictions if the essence 
of academic freedom is to hold any real 
meaning. ". . . no matter how much we 
free the student to examine new and differ- 
ent ideas, the context in which he operates 
is set by the basic environment in which 
he lives. Educational reform will not suc- 
ceed without elimination of abbitrary social 
rules." (Teddy O'Toole, National Student 

The students have absolutely no substan- 
live voice in the selection, retention, and 
tenuring of academic personnel of the col- 
lege. The responsibilities of academic free- 
dom which are attendant upon students re- 
quire his participation in these processes 
if "academic freedom" is to become more 
than trite verbage. 

Though highly creative and relevant as stu- 
dent concepts of curricula may be, students 
• in not have substantive voice In the fom 
lion and review of courses, grading and poli- 
Cies of admission and transfer, all oi which 
have been encroached upon by administra- 
tive policy. These are joint faculty-student 
prerogatives, and the students seek a voice 
equal to the faculty in such matters. 

We, the students, are indeed being ex- 
ploited in the name of preservation of the 
institution. Room and board requirements, 
over which we have no control, are but one 
example. Tuition is yet another in which our 
student government, as collective bargaining 
agent on behalf of our interests, has been 
emasculated to this end. We are taught 
analytical approaches to economics, politics, 
philosophy and history but have been denied 
meaningful outlets for interpretation and 
application. We don't know whether to laugh, 
cry or applaud when we read, "The college 
community is a searching one. Even more 
so at a Christian college the search must 
be allowed honestly to go where it may and 
discover what it must. Christian dynamics 
that stand untested are of little use for the 
college youth who is searching for values 
that must be real to him."

mission on college governance. 

Frustration is the emotion that more than 
any other I have felt in working through 
Student Government this year. I believe 
frustration is a feeling that is a part of all 
'.students who work for improvements through 
change under the present structure of admin- 
istration, faculty, and .student roles. 

It is necessary that students go either of 
two ways if they desire any real voice in 
the functioning of this college. The first 

c oc 


The enormity of this task is clear to us. 
Somewhat less clear, perhaps, is that there 
may be a definable "Student Role" at all. 
Such as that may be, here are some final 

1) Some form of existential humanism may 
be the only "ethic" consistent with the 
purposes of the academic community, and this 
certainly appears more familiar and accept- 
able to the students than any attempt to inter- 
pret the "Christian ethic" for us. 

2) Students will attempt the clarification 
of faculty, student andadministrativeprerog. 
atives for themselves and will seek a dele- 
gation of policy-making power accordingly. 

3) Hopefully, as Paul Goodman has written, 
. the student activity will revive the 

dormant community of the faculty." The 
students will need faculty backing to sue- 
ceed in the creation of new "channels" 
conducive to communication. 

4) 'The chief political action of students" 
could, at present, again quoting Goodman, 
". . . be intra-mural — humanizing and making 
cultural the academic community — for the 
colleges and universities have become so 
tightly interlocked with the dominant tightly 
interlocked system of society that any intra- 
mural improvement will be a profound shock 
to the system. Also, in these matters stu- 
dents can really know what they are talking 

5) Substantial education of members of this 
commission and all other power- wielding 
segments of the college corporation may be 
necessary prior to final agreement over 
issues of substance. In conclusion, we quote 
from the Skolnick Report to the National 
Commission on the Causes and Prevention 

of Violence, pp. 121-2: 

... if the university is to function aca- 
demically, serious questions must be raised 
concerning its structure of power. Foremost 
is the problem of attenuation of the uni- 
versity's autonomy from distant interests, as 
manifested in the location of decision-maxing 
powers in the hands of trustees whose values 
i interests so frequently conflict with 
those of an academic community. Any sen- 
ous attempl to come to grips with the 
issues raised by contemporary student pro- 
test must consider the problem harac- 

ter ol this form of govern be 

that trustee govt! name lias lost its use- 
fulness, as Riesn, I Jencks have argued, 
boards of trustees "seem in main ways to 
use more trouble tlian they are worth." 
On the other hand, the answer may Lie in 
the direction of structuring boards into 
loser accordance with the social and poli- 
tical make-up of the community as a whole. 
The overriding issue is whether an educa- 
tional system can endure without the consent 
and support of faculty and students, and 
whether such higher authorities as trus- 
tees, boards of regents, and legislatures 
can expect tranquility on a campus that Is 
governed on controversial Issues by remote 
authorities whose understanding of academic 
values is minimal and who are empowered 
to undercut academic and administrative de- 
cisions with which they disagree. Reform of 
the present conditions of university boards 
is a prerequisite to campus order in the 

Another prerequisite is the increased parti- 
cipation of students in university decision, 
making aad policy-making. The inclusion of 
students in campus policy-making is arecog- 
nit inn that formal political means are nee- 
essary to provide adequate representation. 
It is neither realistic nor justifiable to ex- 
pect contemporary students to rem on- 

tent as second class citizens within the 
university, When the university was less im-

be students, faculty, and administrative per- 
sonnel on every committee. 


1. Any changes in the Articles of Incor- 
poration and the By-Laws of the college

community government should be Spring 
Quarter, 1970; a moratorium on controver- 
sial social and academic legislation should 
take effect during this Spring Quarter. 

4. The General Assembly of the college 
would then use this quarter for clarifica-

and the appointment of committee members, 
election of chairmen, and selection of mem-

as determined by this governance commis- 
sion, shall be required to teach a minimum 
of two to a maximum of three courses per 
year, not more than one per quarter and not 
more than one during the summer session. 

3. The educational value to students of 
such a government cannot in any way be 
overestimated — this is our answer to OUR 
problem: an ant 1 -apathy campaign, if you 
will. If students should have the oppor- 
tunity to learn by participating, think of the 
immense value to a society which is very 
short on concerned, able participants. We 
think of our real spirit of innovation, of our 
ability to lead in education, and we know this 
is our solution. The academic community 
and the nation today need, and respect, 
innovators of the new systems which our 
society needs.

Community Government at California Lutheran College: Schematic Structure 



In the beginning was the word, and the word 
was with "The Man" and the word was "The 
Man." All things were made through (it/him) 
and was not anything made that was made. 

Upon pain of death for blasphemous writ- 
ing and asking pardon if I unintentionally 
offend, I wish again to expound on another 
event in the sequence in "The Trials and 
Tribulations of N. Goodfaith." You must 
first understand one thing — N. Goodfaith 
is what would be colloquially known as a 
"schizo." One personality has a submis- 
sive hyponotic susceptibility to assuming a 
subordinate position in life. The other per- 
sonality perpetrates the opposite aspect of 
the split personality under the guise of pro- 
tective concern and home-cure methods. The 
basic plot is intricate, with many subplots 
of which you are familiar, but the theme 

centers around the realization during treat- 
ment that, just as in N. Goodfaith's per- 
sonality(s), rights, freedoms and other worthy 
ideals in life are more often than not a facade 
for not so rightful activities. 

Just let me enumerate one of the most 
recent activities that has further rent the 
veil. A policy was drawn up on Dec. 22, 19G9, 
by the Administrative Policy Committee com- 
posed of exclusively administrative mem- 
bers, in which the roles and rights of the 
segments of the college were outlined. Out- 
lining and suggesting are legitimate activi- 
ties, as well as establishing rules pertaining 
to their own peers. Even suggesting such 
items to the faculty and students is pardon- 
able because we do uphold the freedom of 
opinion and to give advice. However, upon 
being told (ordered) that we had to reconsi- 
der and revise our proposed legislation to

A student is like a page. He has a place, 

and he is important because of his place. 
We call such an arrangement, in its tota. 
lity, a context. But it is my feeling that the 
general body of pages in our book called 
CLC, is most jumbled, out of order, out of 
context. We have become a shuffled mass of 
incoherent babblings. But we have an advan- 
tage o^er the ordinary page, for we can ar- 
range ourselves. There is no great arranger 
who will come and make us coherent, we must 
do that ourselves. Every student should know 
where he stands, and place himself there. 
But we are reluctant to do so. Consequently 
we are confused as to our place, and most 
give up in frustration. Thus we leave our- 
selves open to be shuffled in any way a power 
structure sees fit. We need to become dam- 
nedly dogmatic in our understanding of the 


issues, the context in wnicn tms cam 
finds itself. We should refuse to al! 
selves to be arranged by the Student i 
ment, or the Administration into contc 
we do not fully understand. This is 
to pass the present issues off as absi 
they are going to change our context 
CLC. This institution is shaping us, ; 
as we are shaping it. If at this time 
fuse for petty reasons to do our si 
students by understanding the issu 
lending support to our convictions, 
are far out of context, we are not evt 
of the book CLC, we are loose-lea 1 
are fit only to be crumpled, and dis 
The change will come. A new cont

find no place, no context, for the 
of our page, then let us find anotl

Dear Editor: 

Concerning Mr. Rob Ander- 
son's unqialified remark that ap- 
peared in last week's "FLYER" 
— I want it clearly understood 
by the readers and especially 
Anderson, that the "art" photo- 
graphy, as he calls it, is defini- 
tely not art and can hardly be 
called photography. My picture 
collage is nothing more than pure 
trash and space filler and was 

intended to be just that 

and nothing more. My I applaud 
Mr. Anderson's financial aware- 
ness though. Anyone who would 
pay the price to have such a 
collage actually printed ought to 
have his little Journalism Pin 
taken away.

Dear Editor: 

This letter is much too late 
in coming, but it seems to be 
imperative to say something now 
to get some competition of ideas 
stirring within the student body. 

On this campus there seems 
to be either complete apathy 
towards student government, or 
complete self-centered interest 
in student politics, and nothing 
else. The Senate has become a 

dictating body with a few leaders 
who try to get done what they 
think should be done without re- 
presenting the majority of the 
students. The apathetic silent 

majority, by not acknowledging 
the lack of integrity in it's lead- 
ers, has let the Senate become 
a useless, non-representative 
tool in this institution. The in. 
fringment of free speech is a 
pregnant issue in the student 
Senate. There is no opportunity 
for competition of ideas or op- 
position, and free speech is be- 
coming a more frustrating issue. 

The student Senate, because of 
the interest of a few, has spent 
it's time with trying to get no 
hours for women, trying to get 
a certain member of the admin- 
istration ousted, choosing the 
campus editor instead of the 
Student Publications Committee, 
and the ASB President has even 
gone so far as to say that he 
will appoint the student repre- 
sentatives from each department 
to the Curriculum Studies Com- 
mittee. This is definitely not a 
representation of the majority, 
but lack of opposition makes the 
Senate a useless, dictating body. 

The Senate action demon- 
strates how a small cult of stu- 
dents are moving towards achiev- 
ing complete Independence, the 
results of which could prove to 
be alienation of students, faculty, 
and administration from one an- 
other, with no one really caring 
about any one but themselves. 

The students in an Academic 
community have a tremendously 
unique and influential position as 
far as constructively changing 
and adding to the educational pur- 

poses and academic areas of col- 
lege life. We should be spending 
more time on matters such as 
good faculty evaluation program 
which would work for the good 
of the whole institution, rather 
than be concerned with things 
such as the Senate has been. 

Student leaders have a respon- 
sibility to the students they re- 
present, and students have a re- 
sponsibility to their student lea- 
ders to make them do what they 
want. Likewise, faculty have a 
responsibility to the students and 
students to the faculty, and the 
same for the Administration and 
Board of Regents. 

This is a plea for integrity 
on everyone's part to work for 
the institution, not against it, 
and to start a trend in competi. 
tlon of ideas that can work for 
the good of everyone Involved.

Dear Editor: 

Realizing how much worry and 
loss of sleep the issue of dorm 
hours causes in the dally life 
of women students at CLC, I 
have come upon a plan which 
should be an acceptable compro- 
mlse to all concerned. The plan 
is quite equitable and shows no 
discrimination to women as to 
their year, race, or class stand- 
ing. With the innovation of my 
plan, a woman student entering 
CLC as a freshman would know 
wWh <;nme r.prtaintv what her 
hours would be while at CLC 


agreement with their policy, I 
id the feeling that we were being 
imatum — do It or else. 
:ical to even have an ASB consti- 
Dvern student organization if we 
isdiction over affairs except those 

recognized by the administration, 
stence only by the grace of the 
ion, as it seems, and our "rights" 

placation? The credibility of N. 
seems to be rapidly widening 

those honest, yet desperate at- 
jpan the gap via the Governance 
n and through varying proposed 
vernmental plans. However, if 
stated policies continue, we have 
fonder if N. Goodfaith will sur- 
gh the next chapter unscathed.

Well-1-1-1, for a while there I didn't think 
Ole Luke would get a word in slantwise 
with the "administration" attempting to "sup- 
press" the campus press, and The Echo would 
have been the forgotten voice of a tranquil 
era when C.L.C. slept under the blankets of 
lethargy and was content with the iron hand 
of paper priests turned administrators hold- 
ing the covers on things. But, times change 
and likewise people — the voice of Dylan rings 
clear, "those not busy being born are busy 
dying," and, my god, there's a lot of nearly 
dead around here. We don't cry "blood, 
blood," but it's true — we do need new leader- 
ship holding the reins and determining the 
direction of the C.L.C. administration, if it 
is to exist as a viable and 'worthy insti- 
tution. To whom? To the Blacks and Chi- 
canos who are tentatively comtemplating a' 
mass exodus next year if things don't change 
in the administration. TotheA.S.B. members 
who see student government as a sham to add 
legitimacy to a unilateral decision-making 
administration. To the Regents who huff and 
puff with alleged authority and then condone 
programs and policies pre-determined by the 
white-biased father and Victorian champion 
of student morality, the Dean of Students — 
not always in the best interests of all those 
passing through the hallowed halls of our 
Christian College. 

While I realize the legitimacy of a Lutheran 


College, I sometimes question the wisdom of 
putting People in charge of C.L.C. direction 
who are evangelists first, Ph.D's second, and 
realists last. It seems sometimes as though 
our Administration is still on a mission, 
saving the damned souls of misguided stu- 
dents by implying they should cloak them- 
selves with moral armour to resist the choice 
of staying out past 12:00 p.m., not falling 
victim to irresponsibility as those do who 
are "removed" to have embraced Bacchus, 
and mixing the blessings of attendingC.L.C, 
or cease "questionable" activities, activities 
deemed arbitrarily so by our Illustrious 
Dean and his holy rules. 

But, sometimes I think it well that C.L.C. 
has an Administrator guided by the unfailing 
hand of a god. "Before you remove the mote 
from your brother's eye, take first the log 
from your own." Such joy to have clear* 
eyed leaders, busy removing lumber from our 
hazy-eyed, irresponsible student body, who, 
at eighteen to twenty-six, still are incapable 
of governing themselves and incapable of 
determining direction for their own social 
and educational progress here with the "fam. 
ily" at C.L.C. 

Ole Luke just wants to add that Christ 
came among us with the lessons of love and 
regard of each man as he is, not to threaten, 
expell, coerce, censure, etc. What? Does our 
College do that? No-o-o-o, not here. 

Ill llllllilf II* 

(if any). My plan basically is 
as follows (subject to revision 
by the ASB Senate), 

1. A Committee made up of 
two (2) students, two (2) 
faculty, two (2) administra- 
tors, two (2) non-students, 
two (2) custodians, two (2) 
"night guards," and two (2) 
Ventura County Sheriff's 
shall administer and organ- 
ize this plan. 

2. A large, sterile, fish bowl 
shall be procurred from the 
building fund for the North 
Campus (on second thought, 
maybe one could be donated 
. . .). This bowl shall be 
filled with capsules contain, 
ing the days of the year. 

3. With proper ceremony and 
meaningless speeches, the 
committee shall draw the 
capsules in a random mat- 
ter and number these dates 
from one to 366. 

4. Women whose birth dates 
fall In the lower third of 
this list will almost certain- 
ly have hours and many will 
also be forced to wear dress- 
es to all classes and meals. 

5. Those women whose numbers 
fall in the middle third face 
some uncertainty and their 
status will depend on their 
particular local dorm. Wo- 
men In this group may have 
hours depending on such 
things as liberalization of 
the situation at CLC, in- 
crease of dorm raid activity, 

or if the "Hour Hawks" gain 
control of the Board of Re- 
6. Women whose numbers fall 
in the last third will almost 
certainly have no hours. 
These women may, of 
course, volunteer to have 
hours. Women in this group 
need not report in at their 
local dorm more often than 
once a quarter. They may 
plan their social life accord- 
The purpose of this plan is to 
make hours more equitable than 
they are under the present sys- 
tem. I realize that any hours will 
be unfair to some, but this is 
necessary for the maintaining 
of respect from other people 
outside our community. We must 
remember that our parents once 
were subjected to hours also.

(any similarity between this sys- 
tern and that now being used by 
the United States Selective Ser- 
vice System is purely on purpose) 

Dear Editor: 

We call all students of the op- 
pressed masses to come forth 
to the aid of their universal 
cause throw off the mighty over, 
seer named Christianity. Realize 
your full potential of true free- 
dom. Be real be alive be free. 
It is your right not your priv- 
ilege given to you by an omni- 
potent college administration. 

God DAMN the administration 
man. . . . The man tries to shape 
your personal moral life ... he 
tries. You must stay true to the 
absolute cause. 


He** f RO( w, 




by Herouy Emmanuel 

When we view the subject of college governance we see two factors 
of college life before us: administration.faculty bloc and the students. 
As we look back at CLC in the sixties, we see its growth and its 
changes. We feel happy that the administration has allowed some 
room for change. But now, in the first weeks of 1970, when our college 
governance bodies are challenged, a heavy tension falls around us, 
and we ask ourselves. Why? 

We believe that students should be given a new "role" in governing 
themselves. Let us not forget it is we that are being educated, it is we 
that are the future in this world, and we should try to make our views 
be explicitly known. 

When it comes to college governance we know that the administra- 
tion faction of our college has taken too hard a line in the past and we 
feel it in the present also. There has been absolutely no meaningful 
balance of opinion resulting in a meaningful balance of power. In order 
for the college to function as a true college we feel that absolute power 
in a single branch of the college government is not right. Even in 
the government of the United States, a democracy, there is a careful 
balance of power between judiciary, legislative, and executive branch, 
es. Here at CLC, there is no such balance and it is quite sad. 
We, the students, believe in definite community governance of our 
college. Our student leaders favor this stand and this was indicated 
in the January 14th morning meeting at the CUB. Now the adminis- 
t ration should understand that what is needed is a progressive, 
mature plan, necessary to insure the future happiness of CLC. 
We also feel that there is a feeling in the administration faction 
of this school that because CLC is a small private college, it is 
"safe" from student unrest. The fact is that students here want a 
say and, private school or not, positive actions must be taken by 
democratic processes and respect must be given to everybody's 

So we ask all the factions of the CLC community to look at their 
roles in the governance of this college and what could be done to 
improve the different roles. 

We, the students, want community governance. We feel it is a fair 
and democratic way to govern ourselves. 

There are many rumors relating to students' 
personal problems with the Dean of Students, Dr. Lyle 
B. Gangsei, which the Senate would like to substantiate 
in order to take effective action. Any action the 
Senate takes will depend on your support. If you

(Trumpet Fanfare) 

Finally, after locking herself behind a 
desk for a quiet first quarter, Dean Heck- 
erson, alledged Dean of Women, made her 
first public appearance to the CLC Co-eds. 
This event took place on the evening of 
Tues., Jan. 13, at Alpha Hall where she had 
been invited to speak. 

After giving a biographical sketch of her 
educational and religious backgrounds, she 
opened the floor to interogatives. Many ques- 
tions were raised, but none were really ans- 
wered. Allow me to sketch the evening's meet- 
ing in order to illustrate what transpired. 

"Do you feel In Loco Parentis exists here 
at CLC?" (Student) 

"Well, I think there were times it did exist 
and I know there are those who feel it exists 
today. . .etc." (Dean) But, she neveranswer- 
ed the question until one student finally point 
blank asked, "Then you do feel it exists 

The next questions were about Women's 
regulations. "What is your position on 
hours?" To this the Dean answered that she 
had stated her position in some sort of com- 
mittee meeting, to which we remarked that 
we weren't at that particular gathering. She 
further stated her stand was In accordance 
with the College Goverance Board. To me this 

does not show her explicit position since this 
board is not even in agreement within itself. 
Sixty minutes of B.S. about hours followed. 

The Dean was asked about the Counseling 
program she had for the Women Students. 
She then proceeded to tell us how Dr. Fel- 
lows and Dr. Swenson offered counseling 
services to the College and how the Dean of 
Students sometimes works in this capacity. 

When asked to describe how she felt she 
was meeting the needs of the Women students 
or how she felt she was fulfilling her role, 
the Dean replied that she felt the distance 
between the students and administration pre- 
vented her from meeting the needs or ful- 
filling her position. I can't sympathize with 
this since I learned that the Dean had been 
invited to such things as Women's Open 
Houses to get acquainted with the girls, and 
never once did the Dean extend herself and 
accept the offers. 

I wanted to share these happenings with you 
because through them I am expressing my lack 
of confidence in the Dean's Professional dut- 
ies — nothing personal is meant. . .1 suppose 
it isn't the Dean's fault — after all, who has 
made her his puppet? 

Respectfully submitted, 
Liz Winter

Upon Beginning A New Decade 

by Dennis Tobln 
"The human, race is moving Into an era 
which it can -hardly understand or master." 

Barbara Ward Jackson, 1969 
That era, of which Miss Jackson so pessi- 
misticly speaks, has now begun. Its begin, 
ning really had no finite conception, but ra- 
ther it was conceived milleniums ago when 
man descended or evolved and began his 
nebulous reign on our Mother, the Earth. 
That the human race is moving, and quite 
rapidly one might add, is an irrefutable fact. 
I choose, however, to be more optimistic 
than Miss Jackson in my outlook, I question 
not our ability to comprehend, but rather 
our direction-df movement. 

Direction vs an instanteous phenomenon 
which may be manipulated by the application 
of external stimuli. We do at present have 
a direction, it is documented by; each breath 
and drink we- take, each mile we drive, and 
each freedom- Ave abuse, both by misuse and 
by failure toluse them. We are at the thres- 
hold of outer space and at the doorstep of 
the inner space which is our body. We hold 
the potentiality of understanding and possibly 
co existing with these realms, I ask you, do 
we not also hold the potentialty of doing the 
same with outselves, collectively and indivi- 
Hnallv. and with our world?" 



The direction has been set. As man looks 
back from the moon, towards the Earth, he 
can see where this direction has led him. 
Man sees his only life carrier, this planet, 
raped and scarred by the hardness of his 
own ego and self approval. The virgin bears 
the marks of war and pillage, of greed and 
wastefulness, and of misunderstanding and 
abuse. The abortion is occuring, can the 
miscarriage be prevented? 
Examination of a few examples will, I believe, 
support my hypotheses tliat our direction is 


1) The recent public announcement tiiat all 
major areas of habitation in the continental 
United States have and are affected by some 
form of air pollution. (The Flagstaff, Arizona, 
area is the last of these areas, having been 
polluted by its proximity to Southern Cali- 

2) The disposal of nerve gas by the U.S. 
Army off the Atlantic Shelf. This procedure 
has been stopped, but that "poison already 
sunk is virtually unrevoverable." (Modera- 
tor, Nov. 1969) 

3) The deaths of sixty people in the Meuse 
River Valley of Belgium, during the 1930's, 
is attributed to the distribution of industrial 
waste into the atmosphere and a stagnant 
air mass of cold fog. 

4) Four hundred and five persons died of 
"poisoned air" in New York City in 1963. 
(Moderator Nov. 1969) 

5) Projected population figures indicate 


a) One-fifth of the world's population is 
now living in cities of 100,000 or more 

b) in fifteen years, one-half the world's 
population will be living in cities 

c) in fifty-five years the world will be, 
for all practical purposes, entirely ur- 

d) fifteen billion people to be fed and 

e) the area between San Francisco and 
San Diego will be entirely urbanized. 
(Center Magazine, Lord Ritchie-Calder) 

Dr. Stanley M. Greenfield, head of the 
department of environmental sciences at 
the Rand Corporation, states: 

'The environmental must be considered 
in its totality. We must not be lured by 
demagoguery or public panic into treating 
air pollution separately from water pollu- 
tion, thermal pollution, land pollution, etc. 
They are interlicking. Methods adopted to 
change the balance in one problem may only 
reverse the balance in another. 
We must know where we are going with the 
total environment before we attempt to in. 
duce major changes in one area." 

A monumentous task, but contrary to Miss 
Jackson one I believe man is capable of realiz- 
ing. What Miss Jackson sees as "the root of 
the confusion. . .the furious and accelerating 
pace of scientific and technological change 
. . ."I see as one of our possible means of 
escape. To convict change as being solely 
responsible for our predicament, is, I believe 
an over-simplification and a potentially harm- 
ful one. We must see our attitudes, our 
mores, and ourselves as being equally re- 

How can this direction be changed, many 
channels are open, they must, however, be 
viewed as being mutually related. As stated 
above, science and its applied technology is 
one means. Ecological education of the pub- 
lic is a second approach which must be 
seriously taken. As over population continues 
the world populace must be made aware of 
the penalities involved. As air pollution in- 
creases, industry must be educated to see 
the consequences. The means are available 
will we use them? What can we do as an 
intellectual community, as individuals? 

1) Primarily we must become involved. 
We must educate ourselves into realizing 
that a problem exists and that it is staring 
us -and our children in the face. The world 
is our's, we must cultivate and develop it. 

2) We as a college community might 
develop an ecological program possibly as 
an interdisciplinary seminar. 

3) I propose the allotment of college funds 
to send qualified and actively Involved stu- 
dents and faculty to ecologically concerned 
lectures and conventions. 

4) We, both as Individuals and as a college, 
hold potentially influencing, economic power 
which we could conceivably use to demon* 
strate our disapproval of this situation. 

5) We must possess an active belief that 
concern coupled with involvement may pro* 
duce change and that hope is an expression 
of the future and a guiding direction for to- 

The future is forever, the possibilities 
are limitless, our involvements and poten- 
tials are bounded only by our imaginations, 
directions are positive and negative, fleeing 
entities, they are reversable. 

6) The U.S.'s limited defoliation of Viet- 
nam has already upset the biological balance 
of that area. 

7) The use of chlorinated hydrocarbon 
pesticides, since World War II, has already 
affected the populations of at least three 
raptorial species of birds in the U.S. (Science, 
Oct. 11, 1968, p. 271). 

The evidence continued to build that our pre- 
sent direction is wrong, but it is not ir re- 

Ecology is "The mutual relations, collec- 
tively, between organisms and their environ- 

ment." We as organic elements miiuence 
every aspect of our environment, i.e., this 
planet and the totality of its components, 
with each action or gesture we make. 

No aspect of our being may be seen as 
being separate and distinct, each must Lie 
seen as it collectively reacts with oui sur- 
rounding. War must be seen as having as 
much ecological sufficience as air pollution, 
racism must be viewed as part of the eco- 
system on a equal footing with water pollu- 
tion. No component is autonomous, self-

Open Letter to the College Students of America 

Plans are now well underway for a nationwide Teach-in next 
spring, Wednesday, April 22, on the grave crisis lacing the qua- 
lity of the environment and the quality of life in America today. 

A national headquarters and staff to organize, coordinate, and 
service this effort is now established in Washington. The ad- 
dress is Room 600, 2100 M Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 

The aim of the National Teach-in is to encourage students 
across the country to take the initiative in organizing April 22 
environmental teach-ins on their campuses, and associated 
efforts in their communities. 

Successful teach-ins on all campuses on the same day will 
have a dramatic impact on the environmental conscience of the 
the nation. They will be immensely effective as an educational 
effort in arousing public opinion concerning necessary steps to 
protect our environment and establish quality on a par witti quan- 
tity as a goal of American life. 

There is no question that in the long run, the environmental 
challenge is the greatest faced by mankind. Distinguished scien- 
tific authorities have been warning for years that mankind is 
rapidly destroying the very habitat on which he depends for his 

In addition, population continues to increase worldwide — 
while scientists warn that we may have already passed sustain- 
able population levels. All across the country, and worldwide, 
increasing numbers of citizens are voicing the same intense con- 
cern as has been so eloquently expressed by the ecologists and 
other environmentalists. 

Yet, many are still not aware of the environmental problems 
being created by our advancing technology. Federally-financed 
projects— such as the supersonic transport plane— raise grave 
questions about possible new environmental dangers. Many res- 
pected scientists and national leaders have indicated that although 
some positive steps have been taken, toxic, persistent pesticides 
are still accumulating in the world environment, wreaking destruc- 
tion on fish and wildlife— and threatening man himself. Is the 
price we pay for these products in terms of their effect upon our 
environment worth the benefits we obtain from them 

The pollution of our rivers ami lakes, and of the air in our 
urban areas continues to accelerate. Suburban sprawl con- 
tinues to destroy vast scenic and recreational resources, with little 
heed being given to plans to create workable environments. And 
the millions trapped in our urban and rural ghettos continue to 
suffer the worst of the massive air, water, land and noise pol- 

Who will finally bear the brunt of this tragic irresponsibility? 
The new generation now in school, the generation which will soon 
inherit the world environment. The time lias come for all citi- 
zens to begin thinking about the basic questions raised by tech- 
nological advances and environmental degradation. 

Students in America and the world, who are deeply concerned 
with the hard choices which their generation faces, are uniquely 
well suited to take initiatives in exploring with all citizens the 


problems created by man's growing impact upon his environ- 

We believe the National Teach-in next April 22mi i rovldes 
students the opportunity to accomplish this objective. Hu 
dreds of teach-ins on that day would bring togd first 

time on a national scale the many young people who a 
concerned about the environment, and would involve ai ate 

many more as well. 

In addition to bringing this widespread involvement, 
ins would present information, draw the issues, stimui ins 

for action, and demonstrate the strength of concern for a livable 

Furthermore, the environmental teach-ins present ai un| 
cedented opportunity for the involvement by student initiative of 
communities, organizations, leaders, and concerned citizens of 
all generations in a common, nonpartisan effort to nu 
of far-reaching consequence. 

Thus, we are writing this letter to urge that all campuses In 
America participate in a broad-based, student-led teach-in effort)

Last week saw the Kingsmen win one, 
almost win another, and lose one. Such is 
the life of a Kingsmen basketballer. The 
young and hustling team lost on Tuesday 
night to a hot shooting Uestmont team, 
106 to 72. On Friday night the baH club- 
opened its home season by beating Biola, 
79 to 69. Saturday night they scared the 
life out of high riding Pasadena only to lose 
75 to 69. 

The Westmont game saw the Kingsmen 

shooting a paltry 24 per cent in the first 

half, and never recovering from a 49 to 

24 half time deficit. One bright spot in the 

defeat was the balanced scoring and team 

work shown by the struggling Kingsmen. 

Tim Iverson led the team along with Ed 

Stllllan with 12 pts., while Don Hossler 

followed close behind with 11 pts., Carl 

Meeks added 8, Roger Collum 7, Rich Gerd. 

lng 6, and Tim Tobln with 5 all got into the 

action. Westmont shot a hot 48.7 per cent 

in the first half and forced numerous turn. 

overs by the Kingsmen, in route to the vie 


Friday night was to see a different story, 
however, as the Kingsmen came home for 
the first time this season. Finding a friend. 



ly crowd, and a continuation of their mistling 
ways the team ran their way to a 36 to 30 
half time advantage. The early part of the 
game was close as both teams traded bas. 
kets, but the Kingsmen forged ahead never 
to lose their lead, despite several runs 
made by Biola to overtake them. In the 
second half the fired. up Kingsmen, led by 
the outstanding shooting of Tim Iverson, 
who shot 11 for 16 for the game from the 
floor, led by as much as 14 pts., and fmally 
won by a 10 pt. margin. Iverson finished 
with 24 pts., he was followed by Wayne 
Erlckson with 12 pts., Chris Eckers and 
Rich Gerding with 8 pts., and Meeks and 
Tobin with 7 pts. 

Pasadena invaded the Kingsmen gym on 
Saturday and were greeted by the teams best 
effort of the season. Using a tough zone 
half court press, the Kingsmen forced many 
Pasadena turnovers. The men from Cal Lu 
forged an early 12 to 8 lead with 15:08 to 
play in the first half. They Increased this 
to a 40 to 27 half time lead. The second half 
saw the Crusaders from Pasadena chipping 
away at the lead. Using a harrassing full 
court press Pasadena caught the Kingsmen at 
the 4:33 mark, 63 to 62. Pasadena forged 
ahead 64 to 63 with two free throws by Larry 

Lawton, and from there the two teams traded 
baskets, but Pasadena iced the game away in 
the closing seconds from the foul line. The 
foul line was the deciding factor in the game 
as the Kingsmen missed numerous oppor. 
tunlties from the charity line, while Pasadena 
converted on theirs. The team was led by 
Hossler's 18-pts-.; Erlckson's and Gerding's 
11 pts., Elkins added 10 pts., wnile Iverson 
was held to 6 pts., by the tough Pasadena 

The frosh dropped three games this week. 
They lost to Westmont, Biola, and Pasadena. 
One bright spot was the play of Pat Daley, 
who scored 35 pts., on Friday and 24 pts., 
on Saturday. Also the play of footballer Sam 
Cvijanovich, who just came out for the team 
this week, was highly encouraging. The frosh 
record now stands at 2 wins and 6 losses. 

With their record now at 3 wins and 9 
losses, the Kingsmen hope to improve their 
record against Claremont Mudd and Azusa 
Pacific College. The Kingsmen have to be 
encouraged by their performance this past 
weekend, and in this writers opinion played 
perhaps one of the best games since 1966 
when they won 14 and lost 15. Stay behind 
them, they are going to surprise a lot of 
people before the season is over.

The matmen won their second match of the year with a 31-15 
rout over San Fernando Valley State. It was a costly win for the 
Kingsmen as they lost Rich Kelly for the rest of the season. Kelly 
sustained a shoulder Injury and lost his match on a default late 
in the 3rd period. 

The match started with Kamura of Valley State pinning Mc 

Mlllen of CLC at 126 lbs. It was an exciting match as Rail 

Rubalacava of CLC won a 12-10 decision over his opponent. Haynes 

of CLC added 3 more points for the Kingsmen with a 10-5 decision. 

Tim Plnkney at 142 lbs. and Dalton Sowers at 158 lbs. won on for- 

feits. In between the forfeits, there was a quick blur as CLC's 

Ken Wright pinned his opponent in .28 sec. Ted Lazaga added his 

5 points for CLC with a second period pin at 167 lbs. CLC gave 

up 10 points as Tom Inguoldstad was pinned by S.F.V.S.C. at 

177 lbs. and Kelly lost 5 points on a default. At heavyweight, 


Butch Standerfer won on a forfeit for CLC, setting the season 

record for the Kingsmen at 2-2-1. The wrestlers travel to U. of 

Redlands on the 24th and will be back at CLC to meet Cal Tech 

on Tuesday, the 27th of Jan. 


Sports Ed. 
The basketball team played their first 
home game of the season, and showed that 
they have a very great potential. They 
have the capability of having a winning sea- 
son. It is up to the students of CLC to In- 
sure the success of their basketball team. 
There are tv*> ways to guarantee that the 
"Year of the Warrior" applies to basketball: 

1. Come to all the home games. Don't 
let anything stop you— classes, tests, 

lectures, etc. 

2. Come to as many of the away games as 
you can make. Demand that the pep club 
set up transportation to the games. 

Through these means we will see 
Kingsmen Basketball to its highest zenith 
in the history of Cal Lu.

DATE: JANUARY 9, 1970 

Although I was originally scheduled to speak at a CLC chapel 
service today, in view of some events of these last days and the 
encouragement of some of my administrative and faculty colleagues, 
I have chosen to place before you some information and points of 
view about CLC policy regarding women's hours in CLC owned and 
controlled housing. It seems worth the effort to bring some further 
attention to a vexing problem on this campus. Over and over we say 
to each other that we ought to be a genuine community of people who 
will work at achieving a good life together. 

All students had a memorandum from the President mailed to their 
homes on December 11th which stated the college policy on hours 
for women which would apply at the start of the second quarter. 
"There appears to be precedent and rationale to authorize 
junior and senior women to live in CLC housing under self, 
determining hours. This will be college policy for such women, 
subject to explicit requests from parents or guardians of 
women under 21 years of age, that they shall be subject to 
limitation of hours. Each junior and senior woman is hereby 
requests to clarify this matter for herself. The college will 
assume that she will have self-determining hours unless we 
are otherwise advised. Such self-determination of hours will 
need to be worked out within the necessities of security of 
our dormitories and consideration of other residents. 

"The dormitory hours for CLC housing which were in effect 
on September 25th will be In effect for all freshmen and 
sophomore women at the start of the second quarter. This 
action is taken upon the understanding that the College Com- 
mlttee on Student Conduct will immediately address itself 
to the further issues involved in dormitory hours at CLC. 
The results of such due process may result in other modifi- 
cations in present policy." 

Ail students were later supplied ■■ < '■ -niorandum from De.. 

Lyle B. Gangsel and Dean Arllne Heckerson, setting forth further 
details about the manner in which the policy would be administered, 
so that lull information might be available to all concerned. 

On January 7th, Philip Reltan, ASB President, and David Lewis, 
ASB Vice President, distributed a letter In which they reintro- 
duced the issue of women's hours after the decision reported in 
my December 11th memo. On January 7th also, the Student Senate 
approved a resolution which further addressed itself to the matter 
of women's hours. 

On January 8th notices were posted on campus telling of plans to 
have students meet in this building at midnight to express an un- 
cooperative attitude toward college policy in women's hours. It 
is my understanding that such a gathering did not take place last 

Also last night tnere was a regularly scheduled meeting of the Ad 
Hoc Commission on College Governance, of wulch I will say a little 
more later. 

It Is possible that some students (hot all I'm sure) find themselves 
somewhat mystified by all the stirring that Is taking place about 
this issue of women's hours at CLC, even some of those who were 
persuaded to sign the petition which was presented to the Student 
Senate Wednesday evening. It seems absolutely essential for the 
President to make some things clear: 

faculty, students and administrators, was unable to operate last 
fall or during the first quarter. This came about because the 
ASB President deliberately refused to appoint student members 
to that committee and blocked the attempts to have them appointed. 
He stated this in plain term as a deliberate attitude, in a meeting 
of the Ad Hoc Commission. 

It was in this setting that the Ad Hoc Commission on College 
Governance came into being. Administrators, students and faculty 
came together to seek solutions wulch could be recommended 
to the responsible declslon-makers for consideration. As the 
weeks moved along it became apparent that we would be a long 
way from completing our work by the end of the quarter. It also 
became apparent that the continued suspension of hours Into a 
new quarter would be an untenable position for the administration 
in its relation to parents, to the constituents generally, to the 
campus community and to the reasonably disciplined life which 
needs to exist at a residential college, such as CLC. The President 
reported this to the Ad Hoc Commission which counseled further 
suspension. He then reported this to the Executive Committee 
of the Board of Regents which counseled the termination of the 
suspension period. The Ad Hoc Commission, when it met on De. 
cember 11th, worked over various solutions and arrived at a 
compromise position which was then stated by the President in 
his memorandum of that date, with two negative votes cast by the 
ASB President and Vice President. 


1. The student body should know that the administration has stated 
from the beginning of this controversy that Initiative 1 was an in - 
valid action. The housing policies, including the matter of hours, 
are spelled out plainly in the Student Handbook as college hours. 
They are established under authority and responsibility given to 
the administration by the Board of Regents. There are established 
processes by which they may be reviewed and possibly amended. 
The Initiative 1 was based solely on the ASB Constitution which 
is subordinate to the college constitution and subordinate to the 
authority and obligation vested in the President. It was a major 
misinterpretation of the ASB Constitution which was placed before 
this student body last October. It was misleading to you to indicate 
that you could, by your vote, take over jurisdiction and the deter- 
mination of women's nours. 

2. The President, without wavering in the basic constitutional facts, 
was aware tliat the Initiative 1 had been approved in this cloudy 
situation because of the presentations and interpretations wulch 
had been made. This was not to charge that this was a deliberate 
handling of matter, but the effect was this. It therefore 
seemed desirable to seek some moderating climate in which 
that question of hours and the more significant question of gov. 
ernance, of "who is in charge," could be examined. It was the 
assumption of nearly everyone that some changes in both areas 
... .of hours and governance, where In order and should be 
brought about. It was In an effort to contribute to such a climate 
that the suspension of hours was announced In early November. 

It should be noted that the whole issue of women's hours needed 
to be referred to some group such as the Ad Hoc Commission, 
since the College Committee on Student Conduct, composed of 

4. With this history behind us it must now be stated that the latest 
action of the ASB Senate on the question of women's hours Is 
just as lacking in validity as Initiative 1 last October. The col- 
lege policy in effect today, and which is continuing in effect until 
and unless changed In due process, is that contained In my Decem- 
ber 11th memo and the elaboration of the personnel deans. The 
unilateral action of your ASB Senate has no standing. I am sorry 
to have to say this, but it is fact. 

5. With this college policy on hours in effect, as revised on Decern- 
ber 11th, there are potential disciplinary actions in effect for In- 
fractions. The Identification of such persons is part of previous 
and present policy. With the added problem of security for all 
residents of women's housing, guards have been requested to 
check I.D. cards to assure legitimate entry. 

With the unilateral action of the ASB Senate and the efforts of 
some students to stir up deliberate disruption last night we all 
need to recognize that the issues have shifted from the simple 
problem of a particular person who stayed out late to a matter 
of possible deliberate disuption of the dormitories. 

In this connection, as a matter of simple awareness, it may be 
appropriate to note my letter of last spring, reproduced in part 
in your current Pioneer Handbook, page 26, wulch Indicates 
the disciplinary possibilities. 

"2. That CLC can also be expected to apply such sanctions and 
discipline where student conduct interferes with its subsi- 
diary responsibility to protect the health and safety of per- 
sons, to maintain and protect property, to keep records, to 
provide living accommodations and other services under its 
established terms, and to sponsor non-classroom activities 
such as lectures, chapel, concerts, athletic events and social 
functions. " 

"3. That wnlle CLC knows that suspension and dismissal are 
generally recognized to be severe and unusual sanctions, 
It also recognizes that there are times when they are justi- 
fied. When a student engages in behavior that raises grave 
doubts' as to his fitness to remain a member of the academic 
community as it understands and describes itself, that stu- 
dent may be denied a continuing place at CLC." 

6. Where does this leave the situation? The consideration of these 
present college policies for possible further adjustment isrecelv- 
ing the attention of the College Committee on Student Conduct, 
to which ASB President Reitan has now appointed student mem- 
bers. This was the Ad Hoc Commission recommendation. Their 
work has been thrown into some consternation by the ASB Senate 
resolution and the subsequent student activity, but it appears they 
will continue their work. If they are able to continue, no doubt 
they will have recommendations before long. 

Further, the Ad Hoc Commission on College Governance, at its 
meeting last night spent the entire evening asking Itself whether 
there was reason to continue its work in the face of the ASB Sen- 
ate action. Members of the faculty introduced a resolution wulch 
called for a recess of the Commission's work to see if there is 
actually a readiness to work as a community group toward some 
viable recommendations for change. This was amended to some 
degree, by setting a date for a next meeting. In the meantime 
three members will evaluate the situation and report back to the 
next scheduled meeting. 

7. Now, some closing observations. The administration and faculty 
are seeking to give you stability in your educational pursuits 
at this residential college. W'e are seeking to fulfill what you 
were told and promised when you came here. 

The interim community action of last December 11th was a good 
omen, but there was much more to be resolved. We are now waiting 
to see what Is possible. 

For all of you I call on you to approach your place in the life of 
this college, with your obligations to all the other members of it, 
on the basis of reason andopennesstoeach other, not on the basis 
of politics or power. In the end these devices can only be self, 

It Is Important that you look at something else. Do not confuse 
the administration's commitment to the search for community 
decision with the present obligations which rest on the President 
and his administrative associates. The administration of the 
college cannot and will not come to a grinding halt until changes 
are made. Life will go on - and can go on with a relaxed and con- 
fldent spirit, believing that we can order our life together for the 
benefit of all who are disposed to seek that as a way of life at 

We love you. Just don't make foolish mistakes. Be sure you get 
full Information about issues which arise in our common life 
together. We trust you will have a good and happy quarterl

And The 



E.C.'s Jesus and the Twentieth Century had its 
second session Wednesday, January 21, where under 
the dual chairmenship of Dr. Kuethe and Dr. Cain, 
the discussion took up some relevant Christian issues

Four an hour and a half the problem of how the 
Black Panther's concern Christianity was tossed 
around. An article by Harvey Cox was read to initiate 
dialogue which was taken up in stimulated fashion by 
the class. Many aspects were hit all the way from 
Jesus the Zealot? to the psychological manifestations 
the Panther's scare tactics bring out in America's 

Throughout the myriad ideas Christianity was never 
abandoned; it was placed central in order to glimpse 
its relevency and its deficiencies within the context 
of today. 

This session seemed to set the general floorplan 
for future sessions, yet, the class is loosely structur- 
ed and can rap where it wills. 

Dr. Kuethe, Dr. Cain, and Dr. Kretzmann, who 
comes as much as his busy schedule allows, join 
with the class In tossing out ideas as well as partici- 
pating in the discussions. 

With this trio of pooled scholarship and class in- 
terest and questioning, this E.C. Happening promises 
to be just that — an event worth spending the time 
getting involved.

T.O.P.D.'s Crack Forces Outdrawn 
By C.I.A. In Dope Bust 

Wednesday, January 28, 1970, twelve CLC students 
were found in a rented apartment by the FBI. Several 
of the students were engaging in immoral sexual acts, 
such as kissing and hugging each other In the dimly 
lit apartment. Others were engaging in premarital 
lnterdlgltation. The alleged cause of these acts 
was reported by Detective Hermann Goerring of the 
Fifth Reichstag Battalion of the FBI. "When we broke 
inta da place, dey was all sittin around smokln LSD. 
We told em they was under arrest, den we told em 
what for, and several confessed immediately to 
(an dis is a direct quote. I ain't too up on the lingo) 
dropping hash, sliooting pot, an using mescaline sup- 

When our students mentioned "pot," the well- 
known killer drug, marijuana 0cnown to cause insan- 
ity, hard drug use, and headaches during periods), 
several of the officers felt it necessary to fire three 
rounds of warning shots into the groin of one parti- 
cularly dark student. He had been seen by the offi- 
cers only the previous day, fleeing across Moorpark 
Road on the "Wait" signal and, following this obviously 
hardened criminal, who had flagrantly violated the 
pubic conscience, they were led to a well known hang- 
out for the long-hair types of our bustling little mega- 

polis of Thousand Oaks. The officer who made the 
discovery, placing integrity over his immediate urge 
to "kill all them damn commies", called for the entire 
Ventura County Sherrlffs Department, which showed 
up immediately with several crack FBI agents, not- 
ably, Detectives Goerring, Fury, and Jockstrapp, and 
Captain America. The FBI, after realizing the gravity 
of the situation proceeded to call In the CIA, but we 
aren't supposed to know about that, since any know- 
ledge of CIA activities would jeopardize the very core 
of our American life today — FREEDOM! 

The combined forces argues for a mere 5V2 hours 
before deciding who would get to take the criminals 
to jail in their car. The CIA solved this minor pro- 
blem by killing the entire Ventura county Sheriffs 
Department, perhaps their single sane act since their 

After driving the communists to Atascadero In- 
stitute for the Criminally Insane, the CIA agents 
castrated eight of the twelve because they "didn't want 
them fagots breeding more of their kind." 
They were confused by the remaining four prisoners 
for several hours while trying to castrate these four. 
Only after a great deal of time had passed did they 
realize that these were girls. It took them several 
days in the Institute's library before they learned 

that women "lacked testicularity." It took them ano- 
ther day to find this word in the dictionary. Here is 
a typical quote from that day of hard line detective 
work. "Does 'T» come after «V or 'C»?»» These 
cute quips reflect the diligence with which our police 
forces are protecting the rites of every Middle A meri-

juana snarfin, hash hording, speed freakin, dope 
crazed, sex manical, fascist, communist, red, wel- 
fare waftln, pimps. 

At last, with these criminals safe in the looney 
farm, where they and every other student In Call- 
fornia belong, America will be safe from the red 
peril which was fast upon us. And at last, Callfor- 
nla will be safe from education. Yes folks we're 
finally free! God bless King Richard, the Chicken.

(CLC NEWS)— "Dark of the 
Moon," a folk-play of witchery 
with music and dance, will be 
presented by the California Luth. 
eran College Speech and Drama 
department under the direction of 
Barbara Hudson Powers in the 
CLC Little Theatre on Febru- 
ary 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 at 8:15 

Written by Howard Richardson 
and William Berney, "Dark of 
the Moon" is a folk drama set 
in the Great Smokey Mountains. 
It deals with witchcraft, shot- 
gun weddings and jealousy. 

John is a warlock, or witch 
boy, who falls in love with a 
human girl, Barbara Allen. When 
he finds out that she is going to 
have a child, he becomes human 
and tries to live with the valley 
folk and be her husband. Church 
intervention, at a revival meet- 
ing, thwarts him. 

The play is interlaced through, 
out with genuine mountain music 
and original Gospel songs from 
the Great Smokey Mountains. 

Dan Cross, sophomore from 
Rodeo, Calif., plays the role of 
John, and Mary Margaret Hoefs, 
sophomore from Redlands, plays 
the role of Barbara. 

Reserved seats are $2.00. Gen- 
eral admission is $1.50, For

Life, it is a'changin, and the governmental 
bodies on this campus are not to be exempt. 
Two versions of suggested future college 
governmental structures were printed last 
week in "Regent's Rag." These documents 
perhaps seemed to some to be idle and ideal- 
istic dreams; however, the need for adoption 
of one or the other is becoming increasingly 
a definite necessity. Student government can* 
not continue to operate in a "no man's land" 
with tokenistic Jurisdiction given by the ad. 
ministration and with a necessary elitism 
engendered by a student body which now con- 
demns it. In relating this problem to the first 
proposal of autonomy (even though I feel 
strongly the need for ASB autonomy) I feel 
that it is infeasible on this campus with 
the present image of student government that 
the administrators of this college have. I 
don't feel that it could truly be achieved 
short of a court injunction. The second proi 
posal I assert, is the only solution other than 
to continue floundering in the present muck. 

The whole syndrome ignited by the polls 
and signs concerning the Dean of Students 
is a perfect example of the present problem. 
The cause precipitating the request for inf or. 

mation was a resolution considered by the 
Senate, which called for a vote of no confl- 
dence in the Dean. Senate had a list of certain 
cases in which it was felt that the Dean had 
applied his personal moral beliefs via school 
punitive measures to people who had reveal, 
ed private information in confidential confer, 
ences. The Senate also had documented cases 
in Senate records in which the Dean had trans, 
gressed the jurisdiction of his office, ignored 
Senate action and the "rights" of ASB gov. 
ernment in general. The Senate felt that 
because of the seriousness of the charge of 
misuse of the Dean's office in counseling, It 
would wait until documented cases could be 
presented before any final action would be 
taken. The subsequent action by a volunteer 
committee was misinterpreted as a smear 
campaign when ironically It was meant to 
prevent just that. The lack of communica. 
tlon and information on the part of the stu. 
dent body was definitely a cause and has 
been an issue whenever the student body as 
a whole charges ASB government with eli. 
tism, etc. However, two facts are quite In. 
teresting— the Senate meeting In which this 


Dear Editor: 

When I first read Eloise 
Olson's letter in the last issue 
of the paper I thought, from 
the tone of the letter, that the 
author was very proficient and 
informed in the area of student 
government in general and the 
ASB Senate in particular. As the 
present Senate clerk, I hold the 
minutes of the Senate meetings 
from March of 1968 until the 
present. I have also attended 
every meeting since January, 
1969, and Eloise Olson has not 
been in attendance at a solitary 
meeting since then; nor does her 
name appear on the minutes for 
the previous two quarters. I would 
like to know how one can criti. 
clze a body without having seen 
it in operation. If her experi. 
ence comes from attendance at 
meetings before March of 1968, 
she has no right to compare 
the proceedings of the first two 
quarters of the Senate's existence 
to the meetings now. 

If the Senate has become a 
dictating body with few leaders 
who do not represent the major- 
lty of the students, then that Is 
the fault of the students them- 
selves. It is at class meetings 
that the students' feelings should 
be expressed to the Senators. 
When attendance at class meet, 
ings is limited to the officers, 
as has been the case in the 
past, they have no choice but to 
express their own feelings. If 
class members are not in agree- 
ment with their representatives, 
they should express their opin. 
ions to their Senators. 

Senate meetings are, and al- 
ways have been, open to any per- 
son who would like to attend. 
In the past, if any person who 

is not a Senator wants the right 
to speak on any issue, the rules 
have been suspended. It is not 
the policy or the practice of 
the Senate to limit the compe- 
tition of ideas or free speech. 
All persons at past meetings 
who have expressed a desire to 
speak have been heard. 

The question of whether it' Is 
more important for the Senate 
to discuss a faculty evaluation 
program, which has already been 
approved and is functioning, or 
the rights and freedoms of a 
student is merely a value judg- 
ment. It is simply a difference 
of opinions whether it is better 
to work for long-term or short- 
term achievements. 

The fact that student leaders 
have a responsibility to the stu- 
dents is true, but in turn the 
students must make their own 
wishes known to their leaders. 
Personal attacks on the ASB 
officers will achieve nothing but 
to close what lines of communi- 
cation are now open. 


Dear Editor: 

Lately it seems the problems 
of the governance of this college 
which have lain dormant for so 
long have come to light and every- 
one is getting upset. Unfortun- 
ately, battlelines are being drawn 
by both the students and the ad- 
ministration, and progress is 
being made by neither. 

The latest disturbance was cau- 
sed by the Senate committee 
designated to reveal student grie- 
vances concerning DeanGangsel. 
Due to misinformation (or no 

information at all), some students 
have come to believe that the 
Senate is attempting to remove 
Dean Gangsei from his office. 
This is not the case. The com- 
mittee is an attempt to find out 
whether or not there is cause 
for ill-feeling toward Dean Gang, 
sei and if there is, why. Both 
the administration and the stu- 
dents have kept things to them- 
selves and relied on rumors as 
part of their source of infor- 
mation. Perhaps if a list of grie- 
vances is compiled and present- 
ed, many of the feelings will 
be aired and solutions will be 
found. We are not asking Dean 
Gangsei to defend his actions, 
but rather to explain them. Per- 
haps we have been wrong in 
making our judgments. But on 
the other hand, if Dean Gangsei 
nas oeen wrong, perhaps rectifi- 
cation will follow. This is our 

Concerning the charge that stu- 
dent government is being run by 
a few, I agree. This always seems 
to be the case. There are always 
a few students (although not only 
the elected representatives by 
any means) who are really con- 
cerned and are working for the 
good of the school. The others 
just sit back and criticize. You 
elected your leaders, why don't 
you let them know how you feel 
personally? It is impossible for 
us to speak to each person on 
this campus. If you are truly 
concerned, you'll make your feel- 
ings known — hopefully without 
making personal attacks on the 
integrity of your leaders. The 
reason student government is 
run by a few is that no one 
else "has time." We are doing 
what we feel is right, but we're

Decisions! Decisions! 

One of them should be a buying decision 

As a college student, you learn to make 
decisions. One of the most important 
should concern life insurance . . . from 
Aid Association for Lutherans. AAL is 
a fraternalife insurance society for 
Lutherans . . . and that's a big ad- 
vantage to the Lutheran student. 

When it comes to life insurance. 
Lutheran college students get a bar- 
gain. That's because of age and good 
health, and because AAL's rates are 
low to begin with. 

Another reason . . . Lutheran stu- 
dents can have certain guaranteed 
purchase options that assure them of 
being able to buy additional insur- 

ance later on regardless of health. 

AAL representatives (who are Luth- 
eran) serve all 50 states and five prov- 
inces of Canada . . . we're the largest 
fraternal life insurance society in 

Take time to talk to an AAL repre- 
sentative soon. Let him show you the 
advantages of starting a life insurance 
plan at your present age. And have him 
show you how dollars saved wijh AAL

tion for you while helping support

clear that God speaks to each of us in a dif- 
ferent way, Church dogma then is not a part

The Brother Antoninus poetry reading last 
Wednesday night at UCSB turned out to be 
more of an encounter or oneway sensitivity 
session than anything else. The 57-year-old 
poet, who gained a wide reputation as a poet 
of the "beat" generation of the 1950s, read 
only four poems (a series of erotic monolo- 
gues between Pluto and Persephone.) He was 
clearly more interested in relating to the 
audience the "identity crisis" he has been 
going through as a result of his having re- 
cently left the Dominican order to marry 
22-year-old Susanna Rickson. His poetryonly 
took up about ten minutes of the one-hour per- 

But while the audience didn't get a chance 
to hear much of his poetry, the event did af- 
ford a unique opportunity to get at the man 
behind the poetry. Brother Antoninus, now 
William Everson, brings to his poetry a fierce 
religious zeal which makes his struggles with 
language symbolic of his spiritual wrestlings. 
Many of his poems are of the famous Dark 
Night of the Soul. A confessional poet, Brother 
Antoninus uses the traditional figures of the 
mystical search: the tortured dialogue, the 
fearful rebirth, the ever-dangerous journey. 
Robert Duncan has said of his poetry: "A 
rhetoric that engages the reader in an active 
physical pleasure of alliterations and vowel 
shapings, sensual Indulgences in the instru- 
mentality of voicing, along with the pleasure 
to the ear of fine music. But for the engaged 
reader of Everson-Brother Antoninus, the 
shaping of the poet and the person is the real 
thing. For these poems are the projection 
of a soul in trial." It was this "soul in trial" 
that last Wednesday's audience had the oppor- 
tunity to become acquainted with.

Ted Lazaga kept the Kingsmen 

well ahead, 21-8. Redlands came 

on strong in the heavy weights 

and picked up two decisions and 

one pin. The drive was not enough 

as the Matmen won by 2 points. 

The same was not true earlier 

in the week, as UCSB dominated 
the mat with a 35-11 win over 
the CLC men. The only scores 
recorded by the Kingsmen were 
a forfeit at 142 pounds with 
Pinkney winning, and a decision 
by Ken Wright and Ted Lazaga. 
The Kingsmen suffered their 
worst loss as'captain Chuck La- 
gamma was taken from the gym 
with a shoulder dislocation. La- 
gamma is the defending NAIA 
champion and has represented 
CLC at the nationals for 3 years. 
The wrestlers have thus far lost 
Dalton Sowers, Rich Kelly, Ad- 
rian Lee and Chuck Lagamma, 
all to injuries.

This has been an editorial comment 







Dear Rob Anderson: Open 
mouth, insert foot. 

The addressee above attended 
the Senate meeting of Jan. 28, 
remained an impartial (?) ob- 
server, and subsequently print- 
ed a very partial and erroneous 
letter. Personal opinions such as 
this letter are allowed to be 
dittoed off and distributed to 
students ( excluding women's 
hours, of course.) However, when 
certain biases based on er- 
roneous information are express- 
ed and used to influence peo- 
pie in a very important and 
decisive situation, i.e., a Presi- 
dential recall election, an urgent 
need for clarification is called 
for. Time and space will not 
permit an examination of every 
item that I feel is contrary 
to fact or clearly presents an 
opinionated interpretation, but 
will concern myself only with 
those most blatant. 

"This (College Committee on 
Student Conduct) like other col- 
lege committees was set up in 
a compromise move last year." 
May I clarify - The ASB gov- 
ernment and the faculty approv- 
ed their participation in college 
committees according to the 
terms outlined in a proposal 
drawn up by the Committee on 
Faculty-Student Relations, which 
is a faculty committee with stu- 
dent representation. The ASB 
Senate approved this proposal 
on Feb. 2, 1969 and the fac- 
ulty on Jan 15, 1969. No com- 
promise' was Involved; it was 
simply a legislative matter. 

'It seems that Phil Reitan 
didn't like the idea of 'outsi- 
der representation' on the stu- 
dent conduct committee and there 
fore didn't appoint anyone to it 
in the fall." The ASB entered 
into all college committees with 
the understanding as stated in 
the Senate on Jan. 27, 1969 
that it "should review all pro- 
posals of committee structure 
before final drafts are made." 
The College Committee on Stu- 
dent Committee presented their 
policy statement to the ASB Se- 
nate, which rejected it for se- 
veral reasons, but primarily be- 
cause it stated that any deci- 
sions would be sent to the Pres- 
ident of the College for appro- 
val. This was directly in oppo- 
sition to the student and faculty 
policy which states that : "De- 
cisions of these committees re- 
quire ratifications of the faculty 
and the ASB Senate to be put 
into effect." The Senate did not 
approve the draft of the College 
Committee on Student Conduct 
on Jan. 27, 1969 and commun- 
icated this to Dean Gangsei in 
a memo sent on Jan. 28, 1969. 
I quote the memo: "Because 
of the lack of consultation be- 
fore a final draft was made and 
due to the weaknesses, the Se- 
nate will not participate in or 
recognize the College Committee 
on Student Conduct until the Sug- 
gested revisions are made and 
approved." Please notice, tins 
was all Senate action. Phil Rei- 
tan at that time was not the 
ASB President, but a junior 

class senator. 

"The topic of hours was 
brought to them and when Phil 
found out that they were meet- 
ing, he had Senate dlsbandon the 
Committee." To unravel the 
thinking in this, may I first 
point out that the word "aban- 
doned" is misused because we 
never officially recognized the 
committee. The committee had 
been meeting without the Senate's 
or Phil's knowledge and as Linda 
Lewis had stated, the student 
members did not realize that 
the committee was meeting ex- 
tralegally in various ways. Not 
only was the policy unapproved, 
but the student members were 
never approved by the ASB Se- 
nate as stipulated in Bill No.7 
of last year for all college com- 
mittees. Also with the word 
"Phil", it would be more cor- 
rect to say "Senate." Action 
on this was handled specifically 
by Senate Rules Committee via 
Resolution No. 13 and by my- 
self through Senate Bill No. 6. 

Another opinion was also ex- 
pressed concerning Senate action 
in giving Phil Reitan a vote of 
confidence. Anderson asked in 
his letter, "Why didn't the Se- 
nate wait for the cases to be 
presented, like with Dean Gang- 
sei, before it passed judgement." 
Again a matter of semantics 
has given a slanted opinion. In 
voting for a resolution no one is 
"passing judgment";a resolution 
is only an opinion, a general 
feeling on a certain issue. In 
no way could any Senate action 
post-pone or reject a student 
petition. Its status was not chang- 
ed in the least. We, who voted 
for the confidence vote, had work, 
ed with Phil and many had talked 
to him individually as well as 
to the students petitioning for a 
recall. We had a discussion in 
which those students present 
were asked several times to 
explain their rationale, but they 
did not wish to do so at that 
time. Perhaps the confusion ex- 
pressed in this letter would not 
have happened if It had been 
more clearly expressed as a re. 
solution stating the feelings of 
the Senate for another ASB of- 
ficial; not a resolution to another 
governing body of the college, 
i.e., the administration, in which 
case we would be acting as re- 
presentatives of the students. 
This was an internal case and 
as such changes the meaning of 
our action. 

Misunderstanding and emo- 
tional opinions are easy to arrive 
at and to hold. I realize that 
I am as susceptible as anyone, 
but I have tried to base my 
statements on legislative docu- 
meats and experience as a Se- 
nator. Particularly when con. 
sidering an important matter, 
everyone must be doubly cau- 
tious to view the issue as based 
on facts, and intelligent reasons, 
not past ill feelings. We must 
employ discussion and rational 
thought, not rumor-rapping. 

Nancy Dykstra 



Man is like a constant maze. Swirling 
Around in the many wonders of his thought. 
Creating illusions, and becoming intrigued 
with these illusions he has established in 
his mind. 

Waiting, watching, and wondering!!! Wait- 
ing for something to do, that will give him 
the equivlance of a satisfied, and insur- 
mountable mind. Watching the time roll 
away as you drift off into the thoughts 
that surround you every day. Then wonder- 
ing why you didn't do anything, or why 
your still where your at when you start 
the day. Therefore creating in your mind 
the structure of changes, which are some- 
times classified as "Mans Moods." Feeling 
gay at certain points of the day, then some- 
one or something changes your mood to 
a depressed or sadness type of stage. Then 
coming up is the roughest and hardest moods 
of all. That is the mood you don't know 
what state your mind is in. 

Now your as students on this campus 
can be classified into three groups: An 
apathetic student who doesn't give a damn 
about whats happening around him. This 
may be over exagerated, but maybe you'll 
see my point. He's also the type of stu- 
dent, who is usually unaware of what is 
going on in the outside world. Outside world 
meaning outside of his own little world. 
Therefore becoming stale and stagnant in 
his own quest for just existing or a state 
of just being. Then there is the active 
or involved student who tries to be on top 
of everthing. In the world, and in his en- 
vlronment, in this case would be school. 
He is usually willing to work for his changes, 
and beliefs on certain controversial issues. 
He's even wiUing to "stick his neck out 


on the limb," to show his awareness, his 
willingness to see things get looked at and 
even understood. 

Now we get upon the third category of 
students those who are caught in the mid- 
dle. You could call such 9 person an idler. 
One who doesn't know whether he is apathe- 
tic or active in his role as a human, or 
even better yet in his role as a student. 
Which are you??? Or do you know??? May- 
be you don't care... 

Man wants to be free to do as he wishes 
whether he is an existentialist or an ab- 
solutist. When reviewing the spectrum, by 
freedom, when wanting to achieve or re- 
cieve such a quest; man forgets he only 
"reaps what he sows." 

Now in C.L.C.'s fight for freedom what 
are you "reaping." What will you "sow." 
Are you just sitting around waiting for the 
next guy to do your job. You say you 
want changes, but are you willing to work 
and sacrifice for these changes. Are you 
going to let C.L.C. stand in a stale mate''.' 
Changes have to be made along with progress 
Anywhere from dorm hours to recalling your 
president who is standing up for those of 
you who would like to change the trivia- 
lities of this higher form of learning in- 
stitute of knowledge (Ha!). 

Are you going to let this school stand in 
a stale mate. Or are you going to do some- 
thing to pull it out of its miseries. 

I realize some of your parents are pay- 
ing for your education, buying and running 
your life, but don't you think it's high 
time for you to start living your own life, 
the way you want it to be!? 

Ray Freese 


A Content 

A moment of reflection is need- 
ad by every strdent at C.L.C. 
This moment is needed to re- 
flect upon student government 
and the office of ASB President. 

Student government has been 
composed of a small, but vocal 
minority. They have succeded in 
perpetuating themselves in this 
elitist form of democracy be- 
cause an almost apathetic stu- 
dent majority voted the same 
way they thought everyone else 
did. Just now we are seeing 
the bitter fruits of this care- 
less voting. We now have a stu- 
dent government that could des- 
troy itself unless it obtains act- 
ive and massive student support 

and pride. 

The office of ASB President 
is only a part, although a some- 
what major part of the overall 
institution known as student go- 
vernment. The ASB President has 
not totally caused nor has totally 
sustained this predicament. 
Therefore to recall only the 
president could provide a conven- 
lent scapegoat without a commit- 
ment to eleminate all the ills 
present in the ASB government, 
yet to vote against recall could 
only be construed as a vote of 
approval. Either way is danger- 

ous ' Bob Leake 

Edward Albee describes a recent dream in which 
the end of the world occured in the following way. 

"The world ended with a series of violent, fiery 
explosions but without sound. There is no time 
for terror; it is overleaped and the suddenness 
is unimaginable as the silent bombs go off. To 
each person there was no questioning as to what 
was happening. It will be seconds before our own 
lives cease- or maybe we are already dead; per. 
haps that is why there is no sound." 

We are already dead if the human resource within 
us is not actualized. Spiritual Re-Emphasis Week- 
1970 is about that: The Actualization of the Hu- 
man Resource. The week is dedicated to involving 
the entire college community in an active probing 
and experiencing of the human resource: what it 
is, where it is, and how it's motivated. 

Spiritual Re-Emphasis Week is about celebration. 
There is something to celebrate when the people 
of God get down to the business of being "earth 
people" participating in the dynamic, daily process 
of life in our world in which Babel is called skin 
pigmentation, national heritage, denominational af- 
filiation, political doctrine, or emotional aberration. 
The celebration of this week is over the fact that 
there is an invitation to be accepted. It is an in- 
vitation to come on as an alive person to the lov- 
ing, serving task; to dust your mind off with the 
possibility of a creative humanization of man; to 

do some stretching in your life because of the free- 
dom and grace of man in Jesus. 

Celebration comes over the fact that Jesus has 
something to say, something to offer in getting to 
the human resource, your resource, which is not 
be completely canned in a system of doctrine. It 
is to be tasted, lived, danced, sung, and thought. 
All five can be anticipated as part of this week. 

Because the human resource is a personal thing 
to be tested and realized, Spiritual Re-Emphasis 
Week will not be a series of lectures but rather 
is designed to build and grow from the inter-commun- 
ication of real people. There will be an input of 
thoughts and messages spoken, sung, and on cell- 
uloid; but these will only suggest and shape what 
can happen within us and among us. It is intended 
to be a new thing, a much needed thing. Spiritual 
Re.Emphasis Week, 1970. The Actualization of the 
Human Resource. 

Paul Keller and Ted McGill, under the auspices of the 
College Committee on Religious Affairs, are the two 
people coming to CLC for Spiritual Re-Emphasis 
Week, 1970. 

Paul Keller discribes himself as "coming out 
of the dust bowl and the depression." He is a grad- 
uate of Wartburg College and Wartburg Seminary. 
His primary interest these days is in rediscovering 
the roots of the Church as a people and expressing 
his insights and convictions through the arts. 

Theme: Actualization of the Human Resource 

Sunday, Feb. 8 11:00 a.m. "Celebration of Expectation," CUB 

8:00 p.m. "A Time to Loosen Up and Let Your Hair Down" 

Monday, Feb. 9 9:30 a.m. Convocation- "Why Man Creates"

Wednesday, Feb. 11 10:10 a.m. "It Can Be Here and Now For Us" 

8:30 p.m. "Celebration of Actualization" 
A Commitment Service 

His greatest concentration has been in the area 
of film making, drama, and worship. Keller serves 
as the president of Kairos Films, Inc. and has 
directed two films, appearing in one, which have 
received gold medals from the International Film 
and TV Festival of New York. A brand new film 
from Kairos will be used as a part of Spiritural 
Re-Emphasis Week. 

Paul Keller has also served as a parish pastor 
for 12 years. He then become president of a design 
firm in Minneapolis. He has also done graduate study 
in the areas of theology, psychology, and the philo- 
sophy of history. 

Ted McGill was born in Connecticut. He has spent 
a great deal of time with the guitar, and as an enter, 
tainer has done a lob of coffee-house work. His con- 
cern is for self actualization. He does his talking 
through songs which he and Keller often write 

Paul Keller and Ted McGill work together through 
what is known as Kairos. Kairos is people work, 
in community effort. It believes that its purpose 
is to deliver every available human gift which can 
help other people discover themselves as human 
beings who are called to be servants. Kairos reaches 
beyond any form of containment which hinders the 
growth of the human spirit, and invites others to join 
in redemption's song.

"Film is the art form that speaks most 
urgently and most persuasively," so says 
the Saturday Review of Literature. Film plays 
an important shaping role in Spiritual Re. 
Emphasis Week, 1970. 

These short films of significance will be 
used. Monday morning's 9:30 convocation 
will feature "Why Men Creats." The film 
is composed of eight separate and distinct 
episodes each of which explores some facet 
of man's drive to be creative. 

The Roman Polanski film, "Two Men in 
a Wardrobe," will be shown Monday even- 
ing in an attempt to deal with "Why man 
doesn't create." "Two Men in a Wardrobe" 
is a nihilistic film. 

A new Kairos film "The Sound of the 
Cricket" will be used Tuesday morning dur- 
ing the regular chapel hour. This is a new 
film which was directed by Paul Keller, 
with the music having been done by Ted

Body of California Lutheran College, Thousand Oaks, California, 91360. 


By Gary Wooster 

The parents of students at CLC now have an 
association. The Parents Association came into being 
just this year as a result of Development Office 
initiative. It was planned during this last summer 
and on December 3, the first mailing of information 
by it took place. 

The reasons for the Association are two-fold. One, 
it will facilitate communication between the adminis- 
tration and the parents. This would help to clarify 
any rumors that might spread about things that happen 
on the campus. Also, it would turn attention to 
areas where the parents and the students — to the 
extent that they communicate with their parents — 
are concerned. Mr. Charles Brown, Admissions Coun- 
selor who is Director of Parent Relations, stated, 
"We hope that the organization would feed two ways. 
That there would be communication between the 
parent and the student, and that there would be 
communication between the student and the adminis- 
tration." Also, it is hoped that communication would 
be both to and from the parent. "Only through two- 
way communication can you have understanding." 
The second reason for the Association is financial. 
It is hoped that some of the parents, being in many 
different industries, would be able to give the college 
both leads and inroads to financial support from 
industry. The Association is designed to work closely 
with the Alumni Association. 

A Board of Directors was chosen during the 
summer for coordinating and liaison purposes. The 
Board members are parents of present and past 
students who have taken an active role in the college. 
Many such parents were asked if they would care 
to become involved and then the "members of the 
'charter' Board of the Parents Association were 
selected by the Board of Regents to be representa- 
tive of the student body In class years, men and 
women students, former students and geographical 
location pertinent to getting the Association launched" 
(as explained by a letter to the parents). 

The Board of Directors are: Lt. Col. and Mrs. 
Robert F. Blume, Mr. and Mrs. Rolf Bodding, Mr. 
and Mrs. John Burison, Mr. and Mrs. Richard 
Gerding, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hugo Hoefs, Mr. and 
Mrs. George Hooper Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Al Ireland, 
Mr. and Mrs. James King Sr., Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles Leo Kopp, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Roy 
Lockhart, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Overton, Mr. and 
Mrs. William Papenhausen, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold 
E. Satrum, Mr. and Mrs. Henry J. Schommer, 

Mr. and Mrs. William K. Scott, Mr. and Mrs. B.G. 
Sims, Mr. and Mrs. Harold O. Sjolie, and Mr. and 
Mrs. John Woudenberg. Mr. Charles Brown, Admis- 
sions Counselor, is the Director of Parent Relations. 
Dr. Omer Reed of the Board of Regents serves as 
a Regent Representative to the Board of Directors. 
Mr. Brown said, "I think if I had to narrow 
anything down to one word as to the reason for 
the Association, it would have to be simply to be 
able to communicate in honesty."

Recently, the Administration of CLC designed a Parents 
Association for the alleged purpose of "communication be- 
tween the parent and the student and communication between 
the student and the- administration." But what they have actually 
done is to produce an "instant constituency" to which they 
can turn for support. 

The parents involved in the association will only be those who 
thought the organization would be worthwhile. These parents are 
usually the ones who feel a need to control their sons and 
daughters, not the ones who would rather let their children 
make their own decisions. 

Where does this leave students whose parents allow them the 
freedom of decision? It puts them in a position of being con- 
trolled by the whims of the administration, being constantly 
backed up by the supra-authoritarian parents of a small minor- 
ity of students. And so democracy is lost in a torrent of oligarchy. 

And did we anticipate this squall? How could we? The letters 
sent to the parents were not known to the students until a 
student saw one on the desk of an administrator. Many students 
still do not know about this. Surely this wide publicity is part of 
the scheme to help "communication between students and admin- 

What can we do about this sellout? Not a damn thingl

CLC Black-Brown Forum 

The Black-Brown Forum opened at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday 
In the CUB. There were some thirty-flve to forty people present. 
The effort was directed to show the white students at CLC 
the need for their understanding and involvement in the dynamic 
movement of Black and Brown cultural consciousness, and the 
overall striving for a better understanding socially. 

Joseph Acquah opened the Forum and introduced Frank Olivas 
of Mecha, a Chicano organization. Frank started out by men- 
tionlng the poor quality of education that is taught in American 
schools in relation to minority groups. He stressed the need for 
more emphasis on these studies. 

Then Donald Alley, from the Black Students Union of Cal 
Lutheran, took the podium. He told of the need for understanding 
from the white people to the Black and Brown movement in the 
United States. He stated specifically that California Lutheran 
College, as a liberal arts Christian college, should be the 
"avant garde" of the movement. He stressed the need for 
ethnic groups to have a positive attitude toward themselves 
If they are to make life for themselves a constructive one. 

Don mentioned some problems in the Institution concerning 
the minority group studies — namely, social problems in 
relation to the rifts in social activities; academic problems 
in relation to history and sociology classes; and last but not 
least, financial problems relating to 
cruitment of more Afro-American and 
misplacement of priorities. 

He also mentioned that by being conscious of the social 
elements of this society, students here can cope with social 
problems easier 1 once they leave school to further their careers. 
Don said that these "cultural studies" are really human studies, 
and that humanism is involved. Don went on to mention that the 

inadequate financing, re- 
Chicano students and the 

BSU is a place where one maintains the black culture — a vital 
part of the academic world. He showed that the BSU is a vital 
part of the Black Community, as is the NAACP and the Black 
Panthers. Lastly he spoke of his hope that to institute these 
studies would result in making students "multicultural" people 

— people who can relate to those of other cultures. 

Anthony Fernandez then took over from Don, and he also 
stressed the need for understanding. He mentioned the national 
and international aspect of the minority group situation. He 
stressed the need for involvement of as many white students 
as possible in the studies, and also the need for the unity 
of the Blacks, Browns, Poor Whites and the Indians to get 
constructive things done in this country. He mentioned a very 
important issue, that related to the "attitude." He declared 
that the image of the "Frlto Bandlto" did little to really help 
to understand the Chicano people at all. He said that the attitudes 
of the white people towards minority groups must be changed. 
He spoke of the need for both sides of the coin to be seen when 
lt came to the actual Chicano studies themselves. He mentioned 
the need for leftist speakers, speeches from the Delano farm 
workers, speeches from the leaders organizing minorities in 
New Mexico. He said that if CLC is indeed a LIBERAL ARTS 
institution, it must reflect both sides of the coin, both alter- 

Joe Acquah closed the forum with a statement that If white 
students want to get involved, they should attend the Experimental 
College Chicano and Balck Study programs. In order, then, to 
promote understanding among the people of the United States 

— in our capacity as students of CLC — let us question, let us 
discuss, and let us manifist this by at least attending the Chicano 
and Black Studies Programs of the Experimental College of CLC. 


On Thursday, February 5, at 8:15, Rex Wester- 
field, Western Director of Public Relations for the 
John Birch Society, spoke in the CLC gym as part 
of the Concert-Lecture Series. 

A very sharp man, Mrs. Westerfield was able 
to make the John Birch Society sound very good 
for a little over an hour, which was as long as his 
speech lasted. A very good public relations man, 
he didn't mention communist, communism, or a 
communist conspiracy once in his speech (Undoubt- 
edly he knew it would have alienated a large portion 
of the audience.) 

He did get into some of the beliefs of the John 
Birch Society but only superficially. The Society is 
for less government and more responsibility, be- 
lieving government is the worst enemy of man. 
They are against the Vietnam war (though reasons 
weren.t given). They don't object to reasonable 
taxation to finance a reasonable government, but 
they do object to one segment of society "paying 
the way" of another segment that is richer and better 
able to pay (This was in reference to how the rich 
use the tax loopholes.). They believe in concerted 
action for change, not just criticizing but positive 
action. They feel the War on Poverty has been a 
cruel hoax, that it has not had the promised result. 
And, they believe that Welfare is more designed to get 

By Gary Wooster 

people on it than off it. All the stated beliefs have 
merit. They are all good beliefs, too good for a group 
with the reputation of the John Birch Society. 

At about 9:20, Mr. Westerfield finished his speech, 
and the floor was opened to questions. 

When asked why the Society opposes sex education, 
he said that the Society was against classes in sex 
"techniques," that children shouldn't be bothered 
with it during the "latent period" of 6-14 or it might 
disrupt their normal development (I got the impres- 
sion he meant they would become neurotic, psy- 
chotic, or perverted), that after that period it's too 
late anyway, and that the only reasonable and appro- 
prlate place for it is the home, though "parents 
do make many mistakes." 

He finally did mention communists and the com- 
munist conspiracy when he was asked who was 
responsible for the problems in America. He said, 
"We attribute a good part of the problems in America 
today to the size, scope, and power of government ... 
and it is exploited by the 'communist conspiracy.' " 

Various people walked out around this time and 
when he commented that the Black Panthers were 
"part of the problem, not part of the solution" 
and that they weren't doing any good for the black 
people. Many of those who walked out were black. 

At 9:40, the group adjourned to the CUB where 
the question and answer period was continued. 

In the CUB he commented that the Panthers are 
not going to help the black people but only bring 
down the "wrath of the white people." He also 
asked one girl in the front row to "name me one 
constructive thing the Black Panthers have done," 
and cut her off before she could tell him. 

The vein of questions and answers turned to 
conditions in the U.S. today, and Mr. Westerfield 
asked if anyone in the audience had seen someone 
starve. (A very good move, it got him off the defen- 
sive and put him on the offensive). When two people 
answered yes, he came back beautifully with "and 
what did you do for him?" Then Mr. Westerfield 
said, "in the U.S. today there is no reason for a per- 
son to starve" (Apparently may people are starving 

His .most illuminating remark (as to how he and 
the John Birch Society really feel) was that "demo- 
cracy is the worst form of government" and this 
nation is becoming a participatory democracy. He 
was losing his cool by this time and probably this 
was just a slip (into the truth). 

In his last remarks Mr. Westerfield really lost 
his cool and told one man that he was the first rude 
person all night. The man asked Mr. Westerfield if 
the method used by the John Birch Society to accom- 
plish its goals wasn't coercion. (Obviously Mr. 
Westerfield knew the truth only too well.) 

Invitation To Commitment: 

Fast At CLC 

The College Pastor Invites all persons in the 
CLC community, faculty, students, and adminis- 
trators, who are concerned about the Vietnam war 
to join with him and persons throughout the country 
in a Lenten-Passover Fast Action. The Fast Action 
at CLC will begin Tuesday, Feb. 17th and will take 
the form of a weekly noon hour happening until the 
end of the Jewish Passover on April 27th. All 
persons wanting to share in this Fast, with Pastor 
Swanson, should meet at 12 noon on the grassy 
knoll by the tennis courts on the 17th. If the weather 
is bad the meeting place will be in the Mt. Clef 

The Lenten-Passover Fast Action has as its na- 
tional sponsors the Fellowship of Reconciliation and 
Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam. These 
organizations are national in scope and have a long 
record of expressing concern over the Vietnam 
war. During this time different kinds of fasts will 
be organized across the country. There will be 
a fast in front of the White House from 9:00 a.m. 
to 6:00 p.m. daily. 

Pastor Swanson describes this Fast as being a 
meaningful way to observe the Lenten Season. Lent 
and Passover are seasons of both reflection and 
rededicatlon. Jew and Christian alike share the 
common history which acknowledges man's need 
for self examination with the context of his brothers 
In our situation — with the Vietnam war both a 
domestic threat and international crisis — Lent 
and Passover 1970, is a special time. 

It is a time when we must say, "No," in a new 
way to that which eats away at the very fabric of 
life which binds us together as persons. Your choice 
to participate in the weekly noon Fast, or not Is 
a free one but it ought to be made in a quiet serious- 
ness. If your choice is to participate have no illu- 
sions about the possibility of peace being declared 
because of this action. This is not to say that it is 
a vain attempt t0 reacn the Chief Executive and 
elicit from him a positive response for peace. 
We will fast because we want that response from the 
President. But we will fast first and primarily 
because this is what we believe our Lord would have 
us do during these days. God's demand upon us at 
this time is not that we answer the questions, 
"Will our fast work, will it be productive, will 
It In fact end the war?" — our God only demands 
that we love Justice and show forth mercy. We 
fast, for one simple meal a week, because we see 
ourselves standing within the tradition of those who 
have a vision for the future which at certain points 
precludes pragmatic questions and answers. 
Through this kind of reflection about where we are 

and what we have been up to with respect to the 
war and our personal lives, there is the possibility 
that we will gain new insight and a new sense of 
what our common brotherhood means. Your parti, 
cipation in this Fast may just be the time when 
your politics get shaken up and your life style 
revamped, your vocation altered, or even your pre- 
vious actions severely judged. It has the potential 
for producing new people who will work harder for 

It could come to a tiny glimmer of identity with 
those who suffer in Vietnam. There is no pretence 
of bearing the burden that the Vietnamese or even 

American soldiers are made to bear because of 
the continuation of the war. But perhaps in doing 
with a little less and at least for a moment neglecting 
food which is a special sign of our affluence, a little 
experience might come across of what those In 
Vietnam experience dally. 

Risk something of yourself, for a change, in a 
celebrative kind of way. There is something to 
celebrate in common beliefs and common commit, 
ments. There is a need for you. Make a commitment 
to Fast for a peace that begins with you and extends 
beyond the nations to all the people on God's earth.

Herouy Emmanuel 

By Joan Ericson 

Herouy Emmanuel, more commonly called 
Roy, came to CLC from Addis Ababa, Ethlo. 
pia. During the twelve years he attended 
an English private school in Addis Ababa, 
Roy learned English and feels no language 
barrier. He attended Haile Sellassie Uni- 
versity for one year, where he studied 
library science. Roy is presently putting 
this knowledge to use by working in the 
CLC library. 

Roy's father works in a Lutheran radio 
station in Addis Ababa, "Voice of the Gos- 
pel," which is owned by the Lutheran World 

The reason that foreign students have 
come to CLC is always interesting. Roy 
says that he had wanted to come to the 
United States for a long time. In Ethiopia, 
he met a fellow countryman who attended 
CLC three years ago; his report on the 
school, coupled with that of Dr. Schaeffer, 
father of CLC Senior Eileen Schaeffer, help, 
ed convince Roy to choose CLC. Meeting 
and talking with Dr. Raymond Olson, Presi- 
dent of CLC, during his visit to Thiopia 
confirmed Roy's decision. Last August Roy 

travelled through Europe before arriving 
in Los Angeles. The highlight of his trip 
through Europe was a two week stay in 

Roy has discovered that the United States 
meets the expectations he had formulated 
through reading and through talking with 
American friends. He claims to be sur. 
prised (and glad) at the liberal speakers 
that have come to CLC. 

Like many other freshmen, Roy has chan. 
ged his major several times and has decided 
to major in political science. After staying 
in the United States and in Southern Calif, 
ornia until he earns an M.A. degree, Roy 
plans to enter government service in Ethiopia. 

Roy enjoys reading new books relating to 
countries in transition. He remarked that the 
international collection in the CLC library 
is not as good as it should be. 

During Christmas vacation, Roy tried his 
skill at Mammoth for the first time. The 
attempt must have been successful, for he 
plans to join the ski club. His favorite 
sport is tennis, however, which he can be 
seen playing from time to time. 

Brother Juniper

To Be On Campus 

Brother Juniper will be on 
campus next week. He's arri- 
ving Monday night Feb. 16th and 
hell be here through Thursday. 
Pastor Swanson is arranging for 
him to be here so hell be in 
Chapel on Tuesday and Thurs. 
day mornings and some other 
places in between times. Brother 
Juniper, a 29 year old composer 
of poetry and music was for- 
merly a member of the Capuchin 
order of Franciscans. He is pres. 
ently sponsored by the Board 
of College Education of the L.C. A. 
His album, Do You Know My 
Name, has received an enthusi. 
astic response. In his poetry 
and his music Juniper points 
out the importance of the happen, 
ings of today in the language 
of today. 

Brother Julper — 
a real man — 
no cartoon Character . . . 

he affirms love in a time of 

hate — 

he celebrates life in a day 

of despair — 

he communicates hope in an 

age of anger — 
because he believes. 
Brother Juniper's world- 
it's for real — 

it's wretched yet splendid- 
it's poor yet rich — 
it's sad yet joyful . . . 

because he sees its variety 

and wonder through the eyes 

of faith. 
Brother Juniper's hope — 
now is the time — 
right here and right now — 
that all men be one — 
that all men have peace — 
that all men love one another — 

as you live what you believe.

It's an idea! 

Let's put some "life" into life insurance 

That's what Lutheran students are 
thinking about . . . life. What's ahead. 
What good things are going to happen. 
A career. A wife. A home and family. 
And, believe it or not, life insurance 
from Aid Association for Lutherans is 
very much a living thing. First, it's 
the only guaranteed form of savings. 
You set your financial goal and com- 
plete it even if you become physically 
disabled. The money you put aside in 
life insurance can come in handy to 
help make a down payment on a home, 

buy a new car, provide an umbrella for 
a rainy day . . . even help send your 
own son or daughter to college. But 
the time to start is now when rates are 
the lowest they'll ever be for you, and 
your good health makes you insurable. 
It's an idea! And the idea man is your 
AAL representative . . . the man who 
tells the life insurance story the way 
it is . . . for the living. He's a fellow 
Lutheran and dedicated to common 
concern for human worth.

With this issue of the Echo , I suppose, 
the first response of many people will be: 
"Well, here goes the editorial merry-go- 
round again." A valid comment, I'm sad to 
say. I have the dubious distinction of 
being the fifth editor of the student news- 
paper since September. I firmly intend to 
be the fifth and final editor of this rag. 

So let's get one thing out of the way 
right now — I will not resign. My predeces- 
sors all had (I feel) valid reasons for 
resigning. I do not. If I am replaced, know 
now that I did not resign . 

When the SPC tonight (Wednesday) appoin- 
ted me editor, it was with the stipulation 
that my appointment would be reviewed at the 
end of the winter quarter. Hopefully, I will 
be approved for the spring quarter as well. 
As I told the SPC, I feel that the Echo is 
in need of oniy two things: a permanent edi- 
tor and a certain measure of support from 
the students of CLC. I intend to supply the 
first need, will you give the second? 

The Echo is "the official news publication 
of the Associated Student Body" <6f CLC, That's 
YOU, follow? "no Cyclamates" and "Freedom 
Fighter's Flyer" were examples of the paper 
was an example of the type of paper you'll 
get if you don't. Because there's enough hap- 
pening here at CLC, at Moorpark JC, Ventura 
JC, UCSB, L.A., T.O., Ventura (??), etc., that 
we could put ourt a good 16 pager every week. 
But if someone doesn't write it, we can't 
print it. our staff is small, staff writers 
are almost nonexistent (right now) . So we 
really need the support of you, the student, 
to keep going, keep the lines of dommunication 

There are some who feel that the Echo should 
not indulge in dubious controversies. I feel the 
paper should report what happens— and what's 
happening now — on and off campus — is controversy 

So we'll report it. Also, some people feel that the 
Paper should stick to hard news only. I feel that the 
Echo is the only "official" voice that the CLC stu- 
dent has; we will leave the pages wide open, there- 
fore, to all and every comment, aside, opinion and 
gripe that any student has. So if you have a gripe- 
write it down and give it to us — we'll air it and 
also qive the "other party" space to reply. 

And what about faculty and administrators? There 
are things they want to say, too, and if they wish 
they can say it on our pages. We're wide open, so 
come on in! 

At this point, I'd like to say THANK YOU to Gene 
Pfrimmer, my predecessor, for doing what I think wa 
a tremendous job as interim editor. He took over when 
he was desperately needed and did his best with the 
material at hand. He has promised to work closely 
with me in the printing of the Echo, and I welcome 
his help. Also, I'd like to thank Gene for showing me 
the technical ropes for making a mess of this sheet. 
And I'd like to thank those others (Ray, Larry, Kris- 
ten, Marilyn, Eric, etc., etc.,) who have volunteered 
to stay on as staff. Please stay.' 

Now I'll stop to catch my breath, and give youz 
a chance to go to the restroom. Jest keep them cards 
n letters comin in, folks! 

— joel davis, editor-elect. 

This is the last issue for which I can be held resp- 
onsible. I had aspirations for this newspaper, but 
very little help. I wish Joel Davis the best of lu- 
ck in his quest for a publication of which we can all 
be proud. I did not resign; I expired.

Eyer since oral contraceptives 
first became popular in America e 
sometime during the '60s, many 
people have wondered if there 
are any effects— not only moral 
issues, but concerning the health 
of women taking "the pill." Be- 
fore any certain answers can 
be given more research must 
be done. Dr. Harold Leif, the 
man who helped place sex in 
medical-school programs, says, 
"the field of research is vir. 
ginal;" which seems to be a ra- 
ther ironic play on words. What 
of the behavior attitudes towards 
taking the pill and how it relates 
to sex, especially premarital 
sex? Dr. Leif claims that the 
university he is working at and 
he "are trying to counter a pre. 
vailing prejudice that the pill 
causes promiscuity. Before oral 
contraceptives, the girl would 
still go to bed with a man, but 
there would tend to be more 
worrying." Many people are of 
the opinion that because of the 
pill, there is more premarital 
sex going on. But Ira Reiss, the 
leading U.S. authority on sex out. 
side of marriage contends that 
when the condom and diaphragm 
came into use many years ago, 
there did not appear to be any 
heightened activity among pre- 
marital sex relations.

ing the pill helps to stabilize a 
marriage, and it helps make 
young wives freer when it re- 
lates to sexual relations with her 
husband. No longer can she re. 
fuse to have normal sexual rela- 
tions with her husband because 
of the excuse that she doesn't 
want to get pregnant. Eight mil-

pill, though it is unknown how 
many are married, and how many 
are single. 

Though no positive adverse 
effects have been noted, it is 
true that venereal disease is up 
26 per cent in the last four years, 
due in part to the use of oral 
contraceptives. The pill, unlike 
the condom, does not prevent 
venereal disease. That's some,

... AND HO 

Support Your 


At the beginning of the winter quarter, 
the editor of the Echo at that time, John 
Guth, asked for volunteers to work on the 
paper. One hundred and t ve people 
signed up and many assignments for articles 
were given. 

At this date the number of people working 
on and contributing to the paper is well 
below twenty, no where near enough to keep 
this paper going. Also most of the articles 
that were assigned still haven't been turned 
in. What happened? Why haven't people sup- 
ported the paper they were so enthusiastic 
about? That I don't know. But I do know 
the result. It was manifestly shown by 
last week's paper, a four page publication 
callled True Funk which was truly balled 
up. It consisted of only four articles and 
two pleas, one from the Blood Bank and 
one from Circle K. 

Many people have been complaining about 
the quality of the paper. They should com- 
plain; it should be much better, and It can 
be. But if it is to improve, it must be 
supported. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 

It's your paper, and it's up to you to 
support it. Even, especially, If you dis- 
agree with it, write for it. The only ideas 
and opinions expressed by it are those that 
are submitted.

Mommy, why do we have cops? 

Not cops! Police Officers. We have them 
to help little girls and boys to cross busy 
streets and to look for their lost pets. 

But mommy, the man at school today said that 
some of them are mean and beat up people and 
even kill people. We shouldn't have these kind 
of people around, should we? 

But policemen aren't like that, dear. They are 
only there to help you. 

Don't they ever hurt anybody, mommy? 

They never hurt anybody who is not a trouble- 
maker. No one will get hurt except the 
troublemakers . Troublemakers are bad people and 
some of them need to be punished. 

But mommy, the man in school today said that we 
should never hurt anybody or anything. Why did h 
say that, mommy? 

He was probably confused. Its a well known fact 
that some people should be punished because they 
cause trouble for the rest of us. 

Mommy, maybe the other people are right and the 
rest of us are wrong . Can ' t that be mommy? 

Stop asking all these questions! Who was that mi 
at school anyway? I'm going to write the school 
board and complain. Bringing communists into 
the classrooms of our schools to prevert the 
minds of the young. Honestly!

Makes It

The person of Hamlet has always been a fas. 
cinating one to the readers of Shakespeare. He Is 
also an extremely difficult character to portray 
well on stage. The role of Hamlet probably ranks 
with that of Iago as one of the most coveted by 
Shakespearean actors, or actors anywhere. 

Nicol Williamson portrays Hamlet In a filmed 

version of the play that is just now finishing its 

run at the United Artists theater in Westwood. 

Last Wednesday over fifty CLC students and friends 

went to see it. Williamson was, to say the least, 


The first impression I got of Williamson as Ham- 
let was his age; I had always pictured Hamlet as 
a person definitely under thirty. Williamson was 
definitely over; in fact, he seemed to be at least 
forty. It was jarring. 

After a few minutes of listening to him, though, 
I almost forgot about this seeming contradiction. 
Williamson's control of the language was, in my 
opinion, superb. The famous solioquies, the now- 
cliched phrases-the laneuaee of Shakespeare's most 
fascinating, complex hero came alive. Williamson 

was not reading a part. He became Hamlet; he 
spoke, whispered, raved as a man would when faced 






Three CLC students journeyed to Den- 
ver, Colorado, to participate in the Rocky 
Mountain National Forensics Contest at the 
University of Denver last weekend. 

Doug Warneke, Bill Bowers and Gary 
Scott represented CLC under the direction 
of Mr. Scott Hewes, Forensics Director. 

Senior student BUI Bowers reached the 
Semi-Finals in 2 events: Impromptu and 
Dramatic Interpretation. Bill went on to 
the Finals in Dramatic Interp, placing in 
the top 6. 

Over forty schools participated in the 
tournament, coming from points as diverse 
as New York City, Abilene,Texas, Seattle, 
Washington, and Spearflsh, South Dakota. 
Among the larger schools which particlpat- 
ed were Northern Arizona University, the 
University of Missouri, NYU and USC. 

The team flew to Denver early Thursday 
afternoon, and returned late Saturday even- 
ing. When asked to recount what had hap- 
pened In between, they merely grinned. 

Mr. Hewes has announced that there are 
planty of competitions coming up in the 
near future, including next week at Cerritos 
College, and soon after that in Whittler 
and in San Diego. Anyone interested In 
participating should contact him at CLC 
ext. 171.

with the agonies that gnawed at Hamlet. 

Several students complained afterwards of a seem- 
ingly over-generous use of closeups. This might 
well have detracted somewhat from the quality of 
the film. In several places,though, this technique 
was quite appropriate-in Hamlet's solitary soli- 
loquies spoken to no one but the audience, William- 
son often gazed directly into the camera; and the 
scene in his mother's bedroom, immediately after 
Hamlet had killed Polonius, used closeups with tell- 
ing effect. 

It should also be noted that the film was not of 
the entire play. Most notlcably, the final scene of 
the play, in which Fortinbras enters the throneroom 
to find Hamlet, his mother, Claudius, and Laertes 
aU dead on the floor, was cut. 

All in all, however, I think that Williamson's 
Hamlet was an excellent piece of Shakesperean 
performance, and Williamson himself deserves to 
be ranked, as Time magazine asserts, among the 
best portrayers of Hamlet In the history of the

Vol.* 9, No. 17 of the Mountclef Echo, The official news publication of the Associated Studei Body of California Lutheran College, Thousand Oaks, California, 91360. 


Chairman: Larry Crouch, Junior Senator 

Post Office Box 2843, 495-8984 
Date: February 10, 1970 

The below mentioned grievances are not intended 
to be a judgment of the Dean of Students. They 
represent an abbreviated list of instances in which 
the Senate of the Associated Student Body seriously 
questions the jurisdiction and legitimacy of the 
Dean's action. These specific cases have been docu. 
mented by the Special Investigatory Committee of the 
Senate (Chairman: Larry Crouch). Names and par. 
ticulars will be supplied upon request by the 
Chairman if there are doubts as to the validity 
of these cases. 

In relation to student government, the Dean of 
Students has deliberately endeavored to disregard 
and circumvent, discredit and subordinate the legi- 
timate processes of the Associated Student Body to 
his office. 

1. During the ASB elections of Spring 1969 the 
Dean of Students was involved in a concerted cam. 
paign against a certain student seeking elective 
office. He not only encouraged another student to 
oppose that individual, but on the day of the elec- 
tion the Dean blatantly distributed material critical 
of that student at or around the polling place which 
is strictly prohibited by ASB election practices. 
A fine was imposed upon the Dean of which pay- 
ment was never received. 

2. It was also during the ASB election of last 
year that the Dean offered a "scholarship" io a 
student if he would seek a certain influential posi- 
tion in student government. However, the student 
refused the offer. 

3. On more than one occasion this year, the 
Dean of Students has selected the students to "rep- 
resent" the ASB at various conferences and gath- 
erings and thereby circumvented the representative 
system of student government. 

4. On the College Union Board and Student Con- 
duct Committee the Dean has demonstrated dis- 
regard for student government in ignoring the nor- 
mal processes for selecting student members. 

5. The administration on many occasions has 
interferred with the publication and censored the 
content of the student newspaper. The Dean of Stu- 
dents has been active in that process. Recently, 
funds for the ECHO were withheld by the Dean 
because he was unsure whether or not the paper 
had a contract with the printers. The threat to 
withhold funds has been used as a lever to influence 
the ECHO on many occasions. For instance, the 
qualifications of the editor and questionable status 
of those working on the paper have been used as 
excuses for such action in the past. 

6. The use of Central Services to duplicate ma- 
terial has always been open to students providing 
that time was available and the student provided 
the paper. During the women's hour controversy, 
one woman student desired to issue an open letter 
to the student body at her own expense. Due to a 
new policy any material of a "questionable" con- 
tent had to be cleared through the Office of the 
Dean of Students. She was denied access to Cen- 
tral Services to express her opinion. 

In regard to the Dean of Students' relations with 
the student body at large, there are many instances 
which call into question the legitimacy of certain 
disciplinary acts. However, due to the personal nature 
of such problems and relations with the Dean, the 
committee has found it difficult to verify a large 
number of these cases because students are gen- 
erally hesitant to come forward with such infor- 
mation. There does appear to be ample evidence to 
indicate that the Dean has often disregarded the dual 
concepts of due process and double jeopardy sub. 
jecting students to punitive measures or harassment 
on the basis of circumstantial or hearsay informa- 
tion. Also, there are strong indications that in 
matters of student conduct the meaning of what 
is Christian and moral is imposed on students 
allowing little room for Individual values. However, 
it is difficult to determine whether such defini- 
tions of "morality" are views of the entire admin- 
istration which the Dean simply applies or whether 
the Dean, is in fact, acting independently in deter- 
mining such. 

February 12, 1970 
Mr. Phil Reitan, ASB President 
California Lutheran College 
Thousand Oaks, California 91360 

Dear Phil: 

I have before me a document dated February 10, 
1970, carrying the name of Larry Crouch, junior 
Senator of the ASB. The document addresses itself 
to so-called grievances related to the Dean of Stu- 
dents of CLC. I am addressing myself to you as 
the President of the Associated Student Body, in- 
asmuch as the heading of this document makes it a 
part of student government concerns. Dean Gangsei 
is in his office by virtue of the appointment of the 
President of the college, with further endorsement 
of that appointment by the Board of Regents. 

I have advised Dean Gangsei not to appear before 
the Senate of the Associated Student Body, partly 
because the grievances are patently contrived and 
primarily because the ASB Senate has no jurisdic- 
tion whatever in the Dean of Students conduct of 
his office. 

If the Associated Student Body, through your office, 
desires to appoint a committee including Mr. 
Crouch, to meet with the President and the Dean 
of Students to discuss this matter, I will make 
myself available. This will be done however only 
alter Mr. Crouch has conferred with Dean Gant 
concerning the alleged grievances, with a genuine 
attempt to clarify and resolve them in that setting. 

Most sincerely, 

Raymond M. Olson 

1. Early Fall quarter a memorandum was re- 
ceived by all of off-campus students from the Dean's 
office. It stated that different areas of an off-campus 
home must be sectioned off and designated, bedroom, 
study area, etc. It was also stated th,at there could 
be no alcohol in off-campus residences. However, 
it should be noted that the college does not locate 
houses for many such off-campus students, nor does 
it have any legal jurisdiction in such matters. 

2. In at least two known examples, students have 
been expelled from this college on the weight of 
an off-campus arrest on marijuana charges prior to 
any conviction in a court of law. They have been 
denied due process and protection from double 

3. In at least five known cases, students have 
been forced to confront the Dean of Students In 
a disciplinary capacity because of off-campus per- 
sonal relationships. In two instances, the counsel- 
ing of the Dean was sought in good faith, but the 
students involved were subsequently faced with dis- 
ciplinary action rather than advice. In at least one 
case, a student, fearful of the results of seeking 
the advice of the Dean, took his problems else- 

4. In two known cases, students were confronted 
with the option of marriage or expulsion. 


I have before me your response to the Report of 
the Special Senate Investigatory Committee issued 
on the 10th of February. To say the least, I am 
disappointed by your reaction to what you term 
"the so-called grievances related to the Dean." 
When the ASB President, Phil Reitan, and myself 
were in your Office several weeks ago, I was 
impressed by your openness and willingness to 
listen to us on this matter. I conveyed my obser- 
vation of such to the ASB Senate as an encouraging 
sign that perhaps better relations were ahead, but 
apparently I was too quick to praise. I feel your 
most recent statement is regretable and takes us 
backwards. Your suggestion that the Dean is "in 
his office by virtue of the appointment of the Presi- 
dent of the college, with further endorsement of that 
appointment by the Board of Regents" forces me to 
strongly object and ask "Quo Warranto?" By what 
right? Who says? By what right can students be 
implicated or, at least, required in abstentia to 
approve the appointment of a Dean of Students in 
which we had no voice whatever. Certainly, your 
argument is unclear considering that the decision 
of appointment was made years before any of the 
current issues were raised. I make this point re- 
gardless of any value judgments that may now be 
associated with that individual. 

As to your advice to the Dean not to appear before 
the Senate of the Associated Student Body, I cannot, 
in all good faith, understand your rationale. The 
Dean in question is the Dean of Students and if he 
cannot discuss his position and reasons for past 
action relating to students and student government 
before the legitimate student representative body, 
then you have made a mockery of the "so-called" 
college community at California Lutheran College. 
When you refer to grievances as "patently con- 
trlved" that simply will not do. What do you take 
us for? I ask you to re-read the opening and 'losing 
statements of the Committee's report. To me it 
is clear that we intend no smear and I resent 
your implication of such. The final lines read: 
"An acceptable solution to the present situation 
can only be found if both positions are known and 
understood. From that basis we can address our- 
selves to the basic issues being raised. . . " 

Furthermore, when it is stated that the "ASB 
Senate has no jurisdiction whatever in the Dean 
of Students conduct of his office," I can only res- 
pond by expressing how pathetic such assertion 
is. For whom was this college created Certainly 
not for students. Why not disband student govern. 
ment by decree? If it is not and cannot be any- 
thing more than an absurd sandbox democracy, 
then why not eliminate it? Maybe we should do it 
ourselves. For if the ASB Senate cannot be allowed 
to voice its objections when student rights (e.g. 
due process, etc.) are infringed upon or take measures 
to assure its own legitimacy, then its continued 
existence is pointless. Again, as I have stated time 
and time again, as we enter into negotiations deal- 
ing with changes In the governance of this insti- 
tution, we must do so in a more cooperative spirit 
of mutual respect refraining from arbitrary defin- 
itions of each other's roles. I regret this letter 
has to be written for I recognize it not to be con- 
structive, but it is time that such actions be made 
public. This is not an isolated example. It is typi- 
cal and student government has kept too much to 
itself too long. Too many insults have been heaped 
upon too many threats. 

If the ASB is to serve the students it purports 
to represent, it cannot be considered to function 
at the pleasure of the President. I have stated 
such to you before. We will not lend what little 
rightful legitimacy you might afford us to what 
are your most illegitimate acts. 

Finally, I cannot but dismiss your closing sug- 
gestion of a meeting at some future date to dis- 
cuss this matter further. Again, you attempt to 
illustrate that the channels of communication are 
open when so obviously they are not. Of what value 
would a meeting be? Your position is quite clear. 
However, I feel compelled to ask why must all 
discussions, as with any consequential decision made 
at CLC, be secreted behind closed doors? Is it the 
fear of openness? Or is it perhaps in this case that 
by meeting with a committee of students you just 
might be admitting that students have some mar- 
ginal jurisdiction in the matter after all? 

You need not, of course, dignify this letter by 
a response. After all, the arguments and illus- 
trations contained herein are "patently contrived" 
and I have "no jurisdiction whatever" in responding 
to the accusations you have made.

" 'These things have I written unto you 
that believe on the name of the Son of God; 
that ye may know that ye have eternal life.' " 
"Are you sure that you read it right? 
Does it not say, 'These things have I written 
unto you that ye may guess, hope, or think, 
that ye have eternal life?"

" 'That ye may know'? But what do you 
think it means?" 

"Mean! Why, it must mean what it says. 
But I never know that verse was in the Bible. 
Why have I not seen it before?" 

"Yet there it is. Do you believe now that 

you may know? Is it possible to be sure?" 

"Yes, yes, for God plainly says so. But 

how, tell me how you know. Oh, if I could 

only feel saved." 

"Feel, did you say? Read the verse again." 
" 'These things I have written unto you.'" 
"Does it say anything about feeling?" 
"No, not a word." 

"But did you read it correctly? Does it 
not say, 'These happy feelings have I given 
unto you'?" 

"No, it says, 'These things have I writ- 
ten.' " 

"Apparently, then, it has nothing to do 
with feeling whatever, has it?" 

"Oh, now I begin to see the light! It means, 
does it not, the things written in God's Word 
concerning salvation?" 

"Exactly. Now let us look at some of them; 
for if you have met the conditions of salva- 
tion, then, on the authority of God's Word, 
you know that you are a Christian. Turn first 
and read John 1.12." 

" 'As many as received Him, to them gave 
He power to become the sons of God.' " 

"Have you received Jesus Christ as your 
Saviour and your Lord?" 

"Yes, I have."

are His child."

The Curse of The Jesus Man 


Bill Carlson 

The Devil wrested himself in the world 
a long time ago- 

-way before I was ever born 
And just after I was born 

a Jesus Man came to me and said; 
"Kid, you gotta fight that Devil." 
And he drove that into me. 

He drove it in with the very nails that 
Stuck him on a cross. 
He kept sayin, 

"Kid, that Devil screwed up a 

whole lot of people. 
You gotta fight that devil." 

And then he crawled inside my soul, 
And I tried to understand as I grew older. 

As I grew older trying to fight the devil. 
Then one day, when I thought I understood 
That old Jeaus Man came up to me 
and said, 

"Kid, there ain't no God" 
And I cried "Oh my God" 
And Jesus Man replied, "But Kid, there ain't no God" 
And I said "Jesus H. Christ" 
And Jesus man replied, "The 'H' stands for 

"Havin a Helliva time." 
As he crawled back inside my soul where he 
continued to say, 

"Kid, that devil screwed up a whole lot 
of people, You gotta fight that Devil." 


What if there were nothing? 

Is your consciousness my idea? I assume your 
consciousness because of our resemblence. 

If with God all things are possible why are some 
things bad? 

What is there to be afraid of? (Imprisonment.) 

As children we play and are punished. Gradually 
we become imprisoned. Our goals should be free, 
dom, clear perception, infinity. What did Jesus give 
Love? The greatest gift is freedom. 

Freedom is always here but prisons obscure it. 
As you approach infinity things become greater than 
you ever dreamed. You never reach infinity. You 
rise higher every moment. If we used the other 
nine tenths of our brains perhaps we would know 
all and merge with all things in all times. 

It is insane for a clergyman to pretend being an 


Between February 8 and February 11 
(inclusive) CLC had eight programs on the 
subject of "The Actualization of the Human 
Resource." There are many people who 
were disappointed with the outcome of the 
programs. I got a lot out of them, however. 
To understand Paul and Ted, I think it 
is necessary to see two things about their 
program. First, the objective was not to 
save souls, as many people wanted. Their 
programs were directed to people who were 
already Christians. Second, if they had put 
their presentation in the form of se/mons, 
no one would remember them. I, for one, 
will never forget them. 

I can't really condense what they said in 
a way that will do it justice. But I do 
have to write this article 'to tell people 
what I think they were trying to say. Other- 
wise an important message will be missed. 
Jesus Christ came to give us life. If 
we want to believe in him : we must be 
willing to commit our lives in service 
to him. If we follow him, we will have 
new horizons and new visions. With these 
visions and with our new life, we can ac 
tualize our human resources. 

I believe that the above paragraph is 
their message. Wliatever your beliefs are 
concerning Jesus, I'm sure that you will 
be able to see that this is what is meant 
for all Christians. 

By Steve Williams 

authority on God or Jesus. If we are created equal, 
how can one person know God more than others? 
Who is authorized to say what Jesus is like? 
We are not sinners. Righteous persons are not 
superior, though they would have us believe so. 

I don't believe Jesus was divine. (Pray to Jesus 
and he won't answer.) When I was three I had a 
dream. I was in a church. It became dark and every, 
one disappeared. I felt fear. Where there had been 
a statue of Jesus was a low dresser. One end 
creaked away from the wall and a tiger peered out 
at me. It was the ultimate fear. Later in the dream 
my brother fought with a lion. Does this illustrate 
that Christianity denies we are animals? 

God is a spy. He knows everything we do yet 
remains hidden. The world is similar to a haunted 
house. In a haunted house we feel spirits watching 
us. In the world we feel God watching us. The 
spirits do not reveal themselves because they don't 
exist. God does not reveal himself. 

Money is swell stuff. It makes a party 
political or social. It builds theatres 
for people to laugh in, houses for people 
to live in and churches too. It can make 
a better mousetrap, develop a vaccine 
or clear a slum. Lots of fine things are 
done with money and lots of young people 
are finding out about the excitement 
inherent in a banking career. D As the 
largest Southern California based bank.

Freedom of Association and Expression guaranteed 
by the First Amendment of the United States 
Constitution includes the right of individuals to pool 
their talents and common interests in furtherance 
of certain agreed upon goals. It exists in favor of 
all private groups, from the SDS to the American 
Civil Liberties Union and even includes CLC. When 
this right is coupled with financial resources it 
becomes a powerful instrument for influencing 
particular conduct in society. 

The federal and state governments and any person 
or agency vicariously related therewith must permit 
these groups to freely compete for establishment 
of the kind and quality of life they believe is essential 
to viable human existence. The concept is fundamental 
and simple. However at CLC it is patently obvious 
from the recent student publications (most notably 
"The . . . Rag") that it has slipped past the under- 
standing of even the most adroit of ASB politicians. 
No one has expressed even a slight comprehension 
of root distinctions between the state operated educa- 
tional institution and the private educational institution. 

Clearly in the past the only justification the state 
college had for imposing moral standards and dis- 
criminatory double standards on their students was on 
the "in loco parentis" theory. In recent years this 
theory has been discredited and abandoned by the 
great majority of state institutions, realizing that 
their educational nature is insufficient grounds for 
exercising a greater degree of control over the pri- 
vate citizen than could be directly exercised by 
government itself. Hence when a student enters a 
state institution he does not leave his Constitutional 
rights behind. For example, a student so inclined 
can exhibit lewd publications up to the point before 
they become "patently offensive" and "appealing 
to the prurient interest." 

On the other hand a private educational institution 
is not an instrumentality of the state and hence the 
Constitutional prohibitions on restraint of liberty do 
not apply. (Granted, there is some "state action" 
at CLC created by government loans and grants 
whereby the 14th Amendment could be argued as 
applicable, but even at the outer limits of rational 
Constitutional construction this protection goes no 
further than equal protection clause prohibition against 
racial discrimination.) So when the freshmen and 
sophomore women cry "double standard" they are 
certainly correct in concluding that discrimination 
exists, but the point is that it is not a forbidden 
discrimination and they have no ground for a con- 
test. Any resident in a CLC facility is a mere 
tenant with no more rights than those granted by 
the owners. 

Similar reasoning applies to the student publication. 
Presently no censorship exists, but so what if it did? 
Does not the owner of the funds that facilitate the 
printing have the right to determine the content? 
The Constituional issue of freedom of speech is 
nowhere involved. Rather the question is whether the 
publication has gone beyond the bounds of academic 
freedom as defined by this institution. 

California Lutheran College is a private associa- 
tion dedicated to expressly enumerated Christian 
principles. It exists because the founders and present 
constituency believe those principles are important 
to meaningful human existence. Standards of conduct 
growing out of this purpose is not legislation of 
morals as alleged by the ASB leaders in their 
tortious attack on the Deans. Legislation implies an 
absolute restriction on freedom and at CLC every 
student has freely chosen a particular kind of educa- 
tion with a sundry of incidents and if and when an 
unresolvable disagreement should attach no one ex- 
pects the student to capitulate in his belief by 

Co-existence with these principles is no more than 
an incident of life for everyone associated with 
CLC, including faculty and administration. Policy 
decisions by College officials are not arbitarily 
made. They involve a difficult balancing of interests 
of not only those within the campus community but 
also member Churches and related groups and indi- 
viduals on the "outside." Hence, although student 
opinion is diligently weighed as an expression of a 
high priority interest it will not prevail if it threatens 
the very existence of the institution. The predicament 
is not advertised, of course, but it can be thoroughly 
documented that each institutional shuffle to the left 
is met with a corresponding stumble in the Develop, 
ment office. This is not to say that money controls 
policy, but rather vice versa, for this is how CLC 
began. Therefore at least one reason should be 
clear why the status quo does not change easily. 

The admitted "frustration" and evident confusion 
in student leadership is the result of their inability 
or refusal to accept the underlying structure of 
this College and continues to be exemplified in the 
debate over governance. Unlike the state university 
campus political gamesmanship is a non-entity at 
CLC. The power to govern is an inseparable inci- 
dent of ownership, and therefore any student claim 
to that power is no more than a frivolous sham. 
ASB leaders have exhibited fantastic elasticity in 
their thought processes but it is an insurmountable 
leap to expect to create a democracy out of a pri- 

vate corporation. 

A straightforward approach to any conflict usually 
gives perspective to one's point of view and clears 
the way for understanding. It frames the issues so 
they can be debated with reason and ultimately 
resolved. The ASB is not without notable achieve- 
ment in improving the quality of education they 
receive and in encouraging a common effort to 
meet educational responsibilities in the community. 
The question is whether it was a blinding "flash in 
the pan." Only with a deliberate renewal of common 
direction will the course change.

By the faculty members of the Advisory Ad Hoc- 
Committee concerned with college governance. 
(L. Murley, P. Paris, E. Tseng, A. Walz) 

The faculty is represented by a 7 per cent mem- 
bership in the college corporation, the convocation. 
Actual governance of the college is delegated to 
the Board of Regents from which any college em- 
ployee other than the President is prohibited from 
sitting. (Article IV, Section 4A of BY-LAWS of 

According to the present faculty constitution "The 
chief responsibility of the faculty is instruction." 
It further states that "to aid in execution of this 
responsibility, the faculty may, subject to the Board 
of Regents, initiate policies in all areas." In order 
to "initiate policies" the faculty can, through its 
faculty meetings, formulate a recommendation to the 
President. When necessary, the President can then 
communicate such recommendations to the Board 
of Regents. In fact, then, the faculty is advisory 
even in its power "to initiate." According to Article 
IV of the By-Laws: "All corporate powers shall 
be exercised by or under authority of, and the 
business and affairs of this corporation shall be 
controlled by, a Board of Regents." 

Immediate involvement of the faculty in general 
college governance, however, rests in various advi- 
sory committees, such as the College Council which 
includes elected, tenured faculty. Faculty of junior 
ranks depend upon the tenured members to present 
faculty viewpoints. Other involvement of the faculty 
in such aspects of governance as faculty appoint- 
ments or retentions, budgetary appropriations, sal- 
ary increments, curricular and extra-curricular ma- 
tters is strictly an advisory one. 

In certain instances (such as dormitory hours) 
the faculty has specific committees to be involved 
in college governance. According to the College 
Accreditation Report of 1967, the faculty committee 
•on Student Standards "considers student problems 
which are referred by the Dean of Students or by 
the Standards Committees of the students. It also 
hears and evaluates reports from the Deans con- 
cerning student life and conduct and offers assistance 
in setting policy and regulating conduct." Both stu- 
dents and Deans, then, can request direct assistance 
of the faculty. Here the initiative for the faculty's 
advice rests outside the faculty.

(L. Murley, P. Paris, E. Tseng, A. Walz)

To accomplish a more effective role of faculty 
involvement in the decision-making process, we rec- 
ommend that a review be made of the faculty con- 
stitution with a view toward making possible changes 
such as: 

1. Greater faculty involvement in budgetary con- 
siderations for the college; 

2. Reconstitution of the College Council to provide 
for the inclusion of representation of junior faculty 
members; and to entrust it with decision-making 
responsibilities for the entire college community: 

3. Reorganization of faculty meetings to stress 
that the faculty is a distinct element of the college 

a. The faculty meeting should be chaired by a 
faculty member elected by that body; 

b. For purposes of maintaining faculty identity, 
only instructional faculty should be voting members 
in this body; 

c. An executive committee representative of the 
faculty, meeting on a weekly basis, to exercise 
powers delegated to it by the faculty (e.g. an 
Academic Senate); 

d. That faculty viewpoints be taken to the Board 
of Regents by faculty representatives. 

4. To maintain continuing community interaction, 
gatherings similar to the Fall Retreat be fostered. 
Some options would be: 

a. That the role of the convocation be revised 
to meet such needs; ui 

b. The implementation of a Community Council 
representing Constituency, Board of Regents, Ad- 
ministration, Faculty, Students, and Alumni. 

We believe that such changes should be considered 
by the present divisions in view of a Constitutional

By definition, meaningful eval- 
uation of faculty teaching ablli. 
ties can be accomplished only 
by those who are being taught. 
Any other observer's judgment 
has questionable probative value. 
Hence the ASB's decision last 
Fall to commence such a survey 
flagged a glimmer of enlighten- 
ment, yet undefined, but with 
the central realization that each 
student has a vested interest 
in the quality of education he 
receives at CLC. 

The effect of the evaluation 
will be to encourage and compli- 
ment many faculty members and 
motivate re - examination by 
others. This is a significant step 
forward. The dismal fact how- 
ever is that the approach is 
fatally idealistic. Two groups 
of faculty members will be un- 
affected by the evaluation: (1) 
those who shrug student judg- 
ment as immature and therefore 
irrelevant, and (2) those who in 
fact are incapable of achieving 

The loophole was caused by 
the ASB's philosophy of faculty 
evaluation announcement where- 
in it was made clear that since 
the survey was a student work- 
product it could not be used 
by the College when reflecting 
on matters of promotion, ten- 
ure, and contract renewal. More 
explicitly, ASB leaders are say- 
ing that teaching ability in the 
classroom is irrelevant to the 
question of faculty membership 
and status. 

At first blush the position 
seems illogical because the in- 
terests of the College could not 
possibly be served by ignoring 
teaching ability when faculty sta- 
tus issues are decided. How- 
ever, the point to be made from 
the illustration is that the posi- 
tion is entirely logical with stu- 
dent goals. In last Fall's Stu- 
dent Statement of Purpose the 
leaders said "We seriously ques- 
tion whether at California Luth- 
eran College we can be or 
should be a community of com- 
mon purpose, direction or spir- 
it." The scope of that state- 
ment is unknown but the cen- 
tral theme is obvious: total in- 

Shrouded in the "inherent 
rights" theory every initiative 
and "railroad resolution" com- 
ing out of the Senate seeks to 
refine that goal. The gavel and 
Robert's Rules of Order have 

become a magical well-spring 
of power alienating the ASB from 
the early established goals and 
spirit of California Lutheran Col- 
lege. No longer is the quality 
of education at the head of the 
priority list with student lead- 
ers, rather it is the vogue stam- 
pede for student political power. 

It cannot be over emphasized 
that student political power is 
essentially an irrelevant issue 
for student leaders to Insist on 
refining and defining. Gover- 
nance of CLC was established 
at the outset by the owners and 
founders of the institution and 
submission to that scheme be- 
came contractually binding at 
the time of matriculation. 

The ASB is in a unique pos- 
ition to articulate constructive 
criticism and plans for amelior- 
ative action. No one else in 
the institution has the same in- 
sight to understanding education, 
al shortcomings. The quality of 
education received is a vested 
interest of every student and he 
has a right to effective represen- 
tation in the Senate to seek those 
goals. That is the spirit of CLC. 
The Senate's arid ritual of mean, 
ingless form has existed long 
enough. The time is ripe for 
relevant, responsible action.

My Philosophy professor told us today 
that writing articles for the "Echo ,; is 
alright, but that what we should be doing 
is doing! 

So I implore you (since I respect Dr. 
Kuethe's opinion very much), go out and do! 
And here I am, Harry Hypocrite, writing yet 
another article for the official student 
newspaper of California Lutheran College. 
What am I saying? Can you hear me? Have 
you heard me in the past? 

Maybe McLuhan was right and the printed 
word is dead (recall the obituaries of last 
weeks paper, the "Death Rattle"). But I 
can't afford Marshall's methods of mixed 
media, and drama similar the Abbie Hoffman's 
takes someone who has very little at stake. 
So I write ludicrous articles for the 
radical Rag. 

Back at the end of the first paragraph, 
I told you that you should be doing. Doing 
what? Perhaps if you bought squeaky ball 
point pens so I knew that you moved. Perhaps 
you could smile--not just a plastic make-up 
smile, but the real thing—with teeth and 
everything. Maybe you could lie about in 
the grass, and I could see you and say "Oh, 
may I join you and will watch the Earth turn 
together." We could even chuckle a little 
at our situation, if just for a moment. 

But you all look like so many audio- 
animatronic marvels, rushing about in your 
own supra-logical stupors. Every action seem 
to have been programmed into your minds by 
some Imperial Wizard. The only Imperial 
Wizard I know would much rather you be 
yourselves ! 

Now that I've alienated the entire Student 
Body of this school, I begin toning down all 
of these things — trying to turn it into some 
sort of crude joke that you can bless with 
a nervous laugh and move quickly on. Maybe 
its because I have a hot temper that I say 
these things, out right now I'm as rational 
as a./ irrational being can be. 

So here ends the article. And here 
begins the crude joke. 

Net even a nervous laugh? 


On Sunday, February 8, Mr. Michael 
Taggart won the Winter Round Robin Doubles 
Tournament in Ojai. Mr. Taggart, one of the 
better known members of the English Dept., 
is in charge of the CLC Tennis Team. 
This is the sixth tournament that he has 
been in since coming to CLC. Of those 
six, he has won four and come in second 
in two. 

In the tournament in Ojai, there were 
nineteen entries. Mr. Taggart went through 
eighteen rounds pla>ing seventy-two games, 
sixty-six of which he won making him the 
winner of the tournament. 

I would like to congratulate Mr. Taggart 
on his win and to wish him luck on his 
future tournaments. Go in there and out-

Lenten-Passover Fast 

The Lenten-Passover Fast began Tuesday, Feb. 17, 
with a meeting of those participating at CLC. Although 
the Fast is in conjunction with various nation-wide 
fasts sponsored by the Fellowship of Reconciliation 
and Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam, 
its focus and purpose at CLC is not orte, but many. 
From the discussion on Tuesday these different 
facets were discussed. The actual fasting is a private 
matter in regards to the extent, duration and prag- 
matic nature of the fast. On this level the Fast is an 
individual, private expression. On another level the 
Fast is a community expression of concern, thought 
and searching. For the duration of the Fast, Feb. 17 
to April 27, a weekly noon rap on Tuesdays will take 
place on the lawn by the tennis courts. Brother 
Juniper contributed song and poetry to the session 
last Tuesday and as the atmosphere is free any 
form of personal expression is invited. The nature 
of any personal fasting is not involved in the dis- 
cussion, so everyone is welcome whether fasting or 
not. A third purpose is to take some form of action 
In addition to fasting and discussion. This mav 
be financial help to agencies concerned with pov- 
erty, hunger, Black freedom, and personal freedom 
with regards to the draft, or voicing our opinion 
to the government, or increasing the involvement 
of people here with the daily reality of the war 
and hunger in the world, or considering provnhn 
draft advice on this campus. 

It is particularly appropriate that this Fast should 
occur during Lent and. the Passover, both times 
of reflection and personal commitments toward ac- 
tion. The fast has manifold dimensions, but its 
basis is concerned people seeking solutions and 
means of personal expression to actualize their

John Page Shumate of the United States 
Department of State will lecture at the 
California Lutheran College Union Building 
lounge on Monday, February 23, at 4:20 
p.m. The public is invited to attend. 

Shumate, who has served in the Diplo- 
matic Service as a Foreign Service Officer 
since April, 1957, will speak on the opera- 
tions of the Department of Latin America. 
Currently, he is on a one-year area studies 
program in Latin American Affairs at the 
University of Southern California. His past 
assignments have included Special Assistant 
to the U.S. Ambassador to Peru, 1961-62; 
Chief, Peruvian Affairs, Department of State, 
Washington, D.C., 1967-69; and Political 
Advisor to President Nixon's Special Envoy 
to Peru, 1969. 

Shumate comes to the CLC campus as 
a part of the lecture program of the Latin 
American Studies Program at CLC. This 
program is the result of a three-year coop- 
erative arrangement with the University 
of Southern California. 

Established at CLC in 1967 through a 
federal grant, Latin American Studies be- 
came an undergrauate major in April, 1969. 
For two years, the Lutheran Church in 
America has given a total of $9,000 in 
grants so that the program could continue 
to offer a wide range of activities for the 
students at CLC, These funds have enabled 
the program to bring distinguished Latin 
Americanists to lecture on the CLC cam- 
pus, to institute a series of symposia held 
at ; USC where CLC students are able to 
meet USC graduate and international stu- 
dents, and to subsidize summer studies 
for CLC students in Cuernavaca, Mexico. 

The University of Southern California has 
contributed graduate scholarships in Latin 
American Studies in the amount of $3,000 
each to two CLC graduating seniors. USC 
lias donated the services of Dr. Kenneth 
F. Johnson, Chairman of Latin American 
Studies, as Chief Consultant to the pro- 
gram at CLC. 

This intensified Latin American Studies 
Program has had the projected goal of 
rechanneling the predominant Scandinavian. 
American emphasis' of the college curri- 
culum to one which realizes minority sit- 
uations such as faced by Latin, Mexican, 
and Black Americans. In concentrating on 
an underdeveloped area of the world, Latin 
American courses seek to dispell the mis- 
conceptions and biases concerning the em- 
erging peoples. 

Area and ethnic studies are rapidly be- 
coming integral parts of the intensive cur- 
riculum patterns of contemporary college 
life. CLC is attempting to implement such 
an approach through its Latin American 
Studies Program.

February 27, 1970 


Vol. 9, No. 18 

of the Mountclef Echo, The official news publication of the Associated Student Body 

of California Lutheran College, Thousand Oaks, California 91360. 

February 20, 1970 

Dear Phil : 

I have learned that you are resigning as 
as President of the Associated Students and 
that you will be leaving the campus for other 

I want you to know that I am grate- 
ful for your past service to California 
Lutheran. This does not mean to say that 
I have approved of every strategem or is- 
sue which the student leadership has raised. 
However, it is the measure of you that you 
have acted in the best spirit of student 
leadership by posing the essential questions. 

I hope that events will lead you to 
reconsider and that you will be able to 
finish the term. 

With every good wish 

take precedence over God. I wish you well. 

Then it's signed and she adds a p.s. 

Dear Mr. Ware, now that you have defeated a grand old man 
to satisfy your lust for power, who should feel guilty, he or you? 

I really don't know why I read that. But it's a letter from a 
constituent. I don't mean that all constituents are like the lady 
that wrote this letter, but I don't think she's that abnormal. 
This is something that we weigh very heavily here at CLC. 
The fact that we have a constituency seems to put an awful 
lot of doubting in them. It seems that everything we do here, the 
decisions we make, all seem to go back to what the constituency 
thinks about it, what it will say, what effect it will have on them. 
I guess our worry is that, how we have to have that constituency 
because that's where our money comes from. Have to have 
that money. 

So the question comes up, what is the role of the church in 
higher education today? Do they have a role? The answer just 
might be that maybe they don't have a role anymore in higher 
education. I remember one professor here at CLC in one meeting. 
He said that we just couldn't afford to do anything innovative here 
at CLC. We just couldn't do that. Everything liad to be tried and 
tested somewhere else. Everything had to be a well-proven fact, 
something acceptable to everyone, before it could exist here at 
CLC. Now what that professor was really saying was that CLC 
will always be mediocre, that CLC is destined for mediocrity. 
Let me ask the question again. If CLC is destined for medio- 
crity should it exist? Is there a role for the church in higher 
education today? 

If you should ask the question of why does the church enter into 
higher education, what do they expect to get out of it. That's a 
difficult question to answer. I imagine that everybody that has 
asked himself that question comes up with a different answer. 
One of them might be that maybe they do it because they want a 
secure place to spend their time, a place where we don't have 
riots or we don't have the people who smoke pot. Maybe that's 
why. Or maybe they want a place where they can define what an 
education is supposed to be and can control the type of education 
that their young people get. Or maybe, just maybe, maybe they 
have another thought as to why they enter into higher education. 
Maybe they don't even realize it themselves. Maybe it is a respon. 
sibility that this school and all church schools somehow to 
educate that constituency. Maybe the whole cycle can be easily 
reversed. Maybe we shouldn't just sit here and say let the con. 
stituency decide and that's what we'll do. Maybe young people 
have a responsibility to liberalize the church, to liberalize 
the constituency. And if they fail to do so, just maybe they 
shouldn't exist. So then the question is immediately asked 
what role could the church have in higher education? 

I'd like to read you Resolution Number 1 passed by students 
of the American Lutheran Church Conference. It reads like this: 

Whereas the colleges and universities of the American Lutheran 

Church exist for the education of the student. 

And whereas the education received at that institution must be 

relevant education of high quality. 

Therefore be it resolved that each student and student body 

collectively develop freedom of inquiry both within and without 

the classroom. 

Proceed upon the effort in fulfilling the academic require-

Phil Reitan's Speech 

I find myself a little bit frightened. Frightened I guess maybe 
because I don't have a manuscript. Maybe frightened because this 
is my last chance to say something to you. Or just maybe because 
I feel like there's a lot that needs to be said and not enough time 
to figure out how to say it. 

I brought a letter here. It was written to William Ware, last 
year's ASB President. It reads like this: 

Dear President Ware: 

Enclosed is a copy of the letter we sent to President Olson. 

Dear President Olson: 

Adam Clayton Powell should not have been allowed to speak at 
California Lutheran College. His perversion towards God is well- 
known. His mouth speaks black and his words steal souls. He 
knows no god but lust. The young are vulnerable to just such 
quackery. Your reputation was denied and rebuked after his 
lecture. Surely God knows you deny Him when you defy His 
commandment, "Thous shalt not know other gods before me." 
What can you do now? I don't know. Student power should nol 

( Continued from page 1) 


This to student government is basic. More, of course, freedom 

from administration control, pressure, and infringement upon his 

life and rights especially in the aspect of morality. 

More towards a direct line of communication with the governing 

board of control. 

I asked for this chance to talk with you today, I guess because 
I wanted a chance to explain why I quit school last Tuesday. 
Maybe to begin I could go back to the speech I gave first quarter 
here in chapel. I said this, "It seems to me it's more deadly 
to just take trite of the American institutional life that it could 
in four years have that automatic passport to the blessings of 
the American enterprise for you see that sheepskin doesn't pro- 
vide the key for a world inhabited by the Viet Cong or the South 
Vietnamese or for that matter the black man. I guess in a way 
I felt that if I graduated from here I'd be doing just that. I 
would be just kind of accepting that ex-sheepskin as the automa. 
tic passport without really having grasped myself, without really 
knowing what I really wanted to do, without really knowing what 
was fulfillment for me. There's a time for each of us so we 
really need to search oursleves. Our education has to become a 
very soul-searching experience, something that completely returns 
ourselves inward searching after the answers to why. Why am 
I here? Where am I going? What am I gaining? So much of educa- 
tion just seems to be reading the text, memorizing a few key 
parts, going and taking the tests and then readily forgetting 
them. I look at students here at CLC. So many of them are 
exactly the same people when they graduate as they were when 
they came in. Somehow four years at an institution and they've 
never really been forced to take a close look at themselves and 
the role they take and need to play as a citizen of the world. 
I would hope that educaton here would be a soul-searching ex- 
perience where every individual could become different. I would 
hope that it could cause students to really realize their potential 
for self-cultivation, for self direction, for self-understanding. 
I would hope that the institution could spur creativity. I would 
hope that it would challenge people to be innovative. I wish it to 
be truly experimental orientated. I guess that I wish that diversity 
could exist here so that people would not be told that they're just 
not part of the CLC family. And I guess I also wish that an 
education would do more than just first cause you to look at 
yourself, that it would also cause you to look really deeply at 
the world in which you exist. I wish it would really cause people to 
come to grips with what it really means to be a citizen of the 
world. I very much wish that the school could be a real credit to 
the community surrounding it. I would hope that the school could 
really give a service to the poverty areas, service to the Mexican. 
Americans that live over in Moorpark andSimiand Fillmore. And 
I wish that we could truly be a community; not just told that we are 
one but one where we really feel a very vital role here, a real 
need for our existence, and a real part in our educational life. 
And it seems to me that that must be just what Christian educa- 
tion should be. It really draws people to radiate that kind of love 
for all mankind. 

When I spoke the first time in chapel I started it like this, 
"Senator Fulbright, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, 
once said, *To criticize one's country is to do it a service and 
pay it a compliment. It is a service because it makes for the 
country to do better than it is doing. It is a compliment because 
It evidences a belief that the country can do better than it is 
doing. Criticism may embarrass the country in the short run, but 
it strengthens its hand in the long run. It may destroy consensus 
on policy while expressing a consensus of values.' "As I said 
then I think the statement also applies to colleges, making it 
read like this. To criticize one's college is to do it a service and 
pay it a compliment. It is a service because it makes for the 
college to do better than it is doing. It is a compliment because 
it demonstrates a belief that the college can do better than it has 
been doing. Criticism may embarrass the college, the administra- 
tors, in the short run, but strengthen their hand in the long run. It 
may destroy a consensus of policy while expressing a consensus 
of values. 

I would hope that you people would be critical. I hope that I can 
be critical. I hope that together we can be critical of ourselves, be 
critical of institutions, be critical of our country and the problems 
that exist in the world. But not only be critical, but be active 
in making change, to really work toward solving the problems 
within ourselves and in our country. 

I've spent three and a half years now here at CLC. And they 
have been meaningful years for me but I need to go somewhere 
else. I hope to find something just a little bit more fulfilling for 
me now. I thank this school very much for the three and a half 
years. I feel like I've made a lot of friends that really are beyond 
a value. I wish you all the very best. 

1970's: Time To 
Wake Up -Excerpts 

By John W. Gardner, Chairman 

The Urban Coalition Action Council 

As delivered at 

The National Press Club 

Washington, D.C. 

December 9, 1959 

As we enter the 1970's there are many curious 
aspects of our situation, but none more strange than 
our state of mind. We are anxious but immobilized. 
We know what our problems are, but seem incapable 
of summoning our will and resources to act. 

We see the brooding threat of nuclear warfare. Wfe 
know our lakes are dying, our rivers growing filthier 
daily, our atmosphere increasingly polluted. We are 
aware of racial tensions that could tear the nation 
apart. We understand that oppressive poverty in the 
midst of affluence is intolerable.. Wt' see that our cities 
are sliding ^toward disaster. 

Ahd'these are not problems that -step at our borders. 
The problems of nuclear warfare, of population, of 


the environment are impending planetary disasters. 
We are in trouble as a species. 

But we are seized by a kind of paralysis of the will. 
It is like a waking nightmare. 

I proposed that as we enter the new decade we 
make a heroic effort to alter both our mood and our 
state of inactivity. Let 1970 be a year of renewal, 
and during that year let us give our institutions and 
ourselves a jolting reappraisal and overhaul. 

Let me say a word about private non-profit activi- 
ties in general — cultural, civic, social service, reli- 
gious, scientific and charitable organizations. Some 
of the worst known examples of organizational decay 
are in this category. And one of the gravest agents of 
decay is the sense of moral superiority that afflicts 
such institutions. Sad to say, people who believe that 
they are doing a noble thing are rarely good critics of 
their own efforts. 

As we enter the 1970»s, all such high-minded or- 
ganizations should re-examine their performances 
with unsparing honesty. Let them ask whether they 
have spent too much time congratulating themselves. 
Let them ask what possible difference it would make 
it their organization went out of existence. Let them 
ask whether they are dabbling with a problem that 
calls for a massive assault. Let this be the year in 
which they ask tough-minded outside critics to work 
with them in a no-holds-barred reappraisal of what 
they are doing. 

Now let's have a look at the person whom prac 
tically no one ever attacks, the person who holds 
the highest title a free society can award: citizen. 
What has be done to give one confidence in self, 
government? Not as much as one would like. Too 
many take a free ride as far as any distinctive ef- 
fort to serve the common good. Too many are apathe- 
tic, self-absorbed and self-serving. 

In a vital society the citizen has a role that goes 
far beyond duties at the ballot box. He must man the 
party machinery, support social and civic reform, 
provide adequate funds, criticize, demand, expose 
corruption and honor leaders who lead. 

One thing the citizen can do — must do — is to re- 
ject fiercely and consistently all politicians who ex- 
ploit fear and anger and hatred for their own pur- 
poses. He cannot rid himself entirely of these emo- 
tions. But he can rid himself of politicians who live 
by manipulating them. Such leaders will not move him 
toward a better future. 

For example, pitting white ethnic minorities against 
black and brown minorities can only bring sorrow to 
both; and the politician who pursues that strategy 
should be rejected by both. 

Polls have repeatedly shown that when all is said 
and done, most Americans do want to see our prob- 
lems solved, including the problems of poverty, race 
and the quality of life. They do want to see justice 

Another thing the citizen can do is to throw tne 
weight of public opinion against those in the private 
sector who are unwilling to work toward the solution 
of our common problems. They should find out what 
major firms in their area are equal opportunity em- 
ployers. Which firms are shirking on that front? Let 
those firms know that their failure is recognized. 
What firms are contributing most to pollution? Let 
them feel the weight of public disapproval. 

Too many Americans have come to equate the cri- 
sis in the cities with racial tensions — and they are 
tired of the race problem and wish it would go away. 
It won't go away, but if it did, the urban crisis 
would remain. Discrimination, in some measure, 
touches most urban issues in this country. But such 
critically important issues as housing, manpower 
and income for the poor deeply involve wnite as well 
as black. And one cannot blame racial tensions for 
our monumental traffic jams, for the inexorable ad. 
vance of air and water pollution, for the breakdown 
in administration of the courts, for the shocking in- 
efficiency and often corruption of municipal govern- 

It is true that when urban systems malfunction, 
minorities and the poor are hit first and hardest, but 
the problem is deeper and broader and ultimately 
affects us all. 

Make no mistake about it, the urban problem is a 
deep-running crisis in the management of complexity 
and change. 

In closing, let me remind you of an important 
thing to understand about any institution or social 
system, whether it is a nation or a city, a corpora- 
tion of a Federal agency: it doesn't move unless you 
give it a solid push. Not a mild push— a solid jolt. 
If the push is not administered by vigorous and pur- 
poseful leaders, it will be administered eventually 
by an aroused citizenry or by a crisis. Systematic- 
inertia is characteristic of every human institution, 
but overwhelmingly true of this nation as a whole. 
Our system of checks and balances dilutes the thrust 
of positive action. The competition of interests inherent 
in our pluralism acts as a brake on concerted action. 
The system grinds to a halt between crisis. Madison 
designed it in such a way that it simply won't move 
without vigorous leadership. I've often wondered why 
he didn't say so. Perhaps, having in mind his bril- 
liant contemporaries, it just never occurred to him 
that the day might come when leadership would be 

One final word — I said earlier that we perceive 
the dangers confronting us but are seized with a 
paralyzing passivity. I believe that passivity is cur- 
able. I believe that we can recover our power to act 
decisively — as individual citizens and an a nation. 
All It takes is money, guts and leadership.

Career Fellowships 

WASHINGTON, January 20— 
The Corporation for Public 
Broadcasting announced today 
that public radio and television 
stations throughout the country 
have begun accepting applica- 
tions for 1970 CPB Career Fel- 

Fellowship recipients will 
spend a year studying and work- 
ing at stations in any phase of 
broadcasting — from administra- 
tion to production. Up to 18 
Fellows are expected to be cho- 
sen to take part in the $240,000 

The twin goals of the project 
are to attract capable young peo. 
pie and persons in mid-career 
into public broadcasting and to 
give them initial experience. 
What is called for is interest in 
non . commercial communica- 
tions, either in the creative or 
administrative areas, rather than 
prior experience. 

Details of the program and 
applications should be obtained 
from public radio and television 
stations. Each station licensee 
will screen its applicants and 
submit one application to CPB. 
The Corporation and its Advisory 
Committee on Career Develop, 
ment will then review all appli- 
cations and select candidates for 
the awards. 

The fellowship year of train, 
ing will begin on June 1 and will 
include seminars for the Fellows 
in July and the following March. 


The Trustees of the James 
D. Phelan Awards today announ- 
ced the Jury of Award for the

ture. They are Nancy Packer, 
Professor in the Creative Wri- 
ting Department at Stanford Uni- 
versity. And Robert Brotherson,

of Writing," and the 1958 Phelan

In the 35th annual competition, 
awards of $1000 are offered in

and the short story, to writers 
from 20 through 40 years old, 
who are California born.

Black Panther Party 
Platform and Program 

What We Want 
What We Believe 

1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our 
Black Community. 

We believe that black people will not be free until we are able to deter- 
mine our destiny. 

2. We want full employment for our people. 

We believe Ihnl the federal govcmmcnl is responsible and obligated to 
give every man employment or ;i guaranteed income. We believe thai if 
I he while American businessmen will not give full employment, then I he 
means of production should be taken from tbe businessmen and placed in 
the community so that l he people « »l l he ((immunity can organize and cm 
plov all of its people and give a high standard of living 

3. We want an end to the robbery by the CAPITALIST of our Black 

We believe that this racist government has robbed us and now we are 
demanding the overdue debt ok forty acres and two mules. Forty acres 
and two mules was promised 100 years ago as restitution for slave labor 
and mass murder of black people. We will accept the payment in currency 
which will be distributed to our many communities. The Germans are now 
aiding the Jews in Israel for the genocide of the Jewish people. The Ger- 
mans murdered six million Jews. The American racist has tafcen part in 
the slaughter of over fifty million black people; therefore, we feel that this 
is a modest demand that we make. 

4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings. 

We believe that if the white landlords will not give decent housing to 
our black community, then the housing and the land should be made into 
cooperatives so that our community, with government aid. can build and 
make decent housing for its people. 

5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this 
decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true 
history and our role in the present-day society. 

We believe in an educational system that will give to our people a knowl- 
edge of self. If a man does not have knowledge of himself and his position 
in society and the world, then he has little chance to relate to anything 

6. We want all black men to be exempt from military service. 

We believe that Black people should not be forced to fight in the mili- 
tary service to defend a racist government that does not protect us. We 
will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like black 
people, are being victimized by the white racist government of America. 
We will protect ourselves from the force and violence of the racist police 
and the racist military, by whatever means necessary. 

7. We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER 
of black people. 

We believe we can end police brutality in our black community by or- 
ganizing black self-defense groups that are dedicated to defending our 
black community from racist police oppression and brutality. The Second 
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States gives a right to bear 
arms. We therefore believe that all black people should arm themselves 
for self-defense. 

6. We want freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county 
and city prisons and jails. 

We believe that all Dlack people should be released from the many 
jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial. 

9. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by 
a jury of their peer group or people from their black communities, as 
defined by the Constitution of the United States. 

We believe that the courts should follow the United States Constitution 
so that black people will receive fair trials. The 14th Amendment of the 
U.S. Constitution gives a man a right to be tried by his peer group. A peer 
is a person from a similar economic, social, religious, geographical, en- 
vironmental, historical and racial background. To do this the court will be 
forced to select a jury from the black community from which the black 
defendant came. We have been, and are being tried by all-white juries 
that have no understanding of the "average reasoning man" of the black 

10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. 
And as our major political objective, a United Nations-supervised plebis- 
cite to be held throughout the black colony in which only black colonial 
subjects will be allowed to participate, for the purpose of determining the 
will of black people as to their national destiny. 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one 
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with 
another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and 
equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them, a 
decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare 
the causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; 
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; 
that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to 
secure these rights, governments are instituted among men. deriving their 
lust powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of 
government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people 
to alter or to abolish it. and to institute a new government, laying its 
foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as 
to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Pru- 
dence, indeed will dictate that governments long established should not 
be changed for light and transient causes; and. accordingly, all experience 
hath shown, that mankind arc more disposed to suffer, while evils are 
suHeiablc. than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they 
are accustomed. But. when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pur- 
suing invariant) the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under ab- 
solute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such govern- 
ment, and to provide new guards for their future security. 



The Caltech Environmental Action Council is plan- 
nlng a Teach-in on the environment for Earthday, 
April 22. This will synchronize with the National 
Teach-in, sponsored by Senator Nelson (D-Wis.) and 
Representative McCloskey (R-Cal.), which aims to 
bring students across the country into the battle 
for a cleaner world. We at Caltech are offering a 
poster contest with a first prize of $50 for the best 
poster on the theme of an Earth Day Celebration, 
a day of joyous thanks for the blessings we still 
have, a day of discussion and learning about the 
problems we face and possible solutions, and a day 
of pledging ourselves to the development of a true 
ecological balance between man and the other citi- 
zens of the world, the plants, animals, and condi- 
tions that make life possible. We welcome help and 
suggestions from any other members of the com- 
munity, especially the professionals and workers in 
the field of ecology and the other campuses plan- 
ning Teach-ins. Entries and letters may be sent to 
CEAC, California Institute of Techology, Pasadena, 
Cal., 91109. The deadline is February 20, 1970. 

To the art instructors: 

This contest may interest some of your students. 
I hope that you will post it in some visible place. 
Some of our people have become rather excited about 
the mixed-media possibilities (junk, Rand McNally 
maps, etc.,) though all entries should be suitable 
for phtoreproduction.

I first met Phil Reitan last year in 
a Political Science class that we had to- 
gether. I had just transferred to CLC as 
a Junior, and I didn't know too many stu- 
dents here. Phil, and Dave Lewis, were two 
of the first that I met and got to know. 

I was undergoing an attitude change at 
the time, a change in attitudes about pol- 
itics, morals, life philosophies, the 
whole bit. And quite often in that poly 
sci class — and often against my will — I 
would find myself agreeing with him on all 
sorts of things. 

I had hoped that, when I became editor 
of the paper, Phil and I would be able to' 
work together to impoeve communications 
between the students and their stuent 
government. . .but now he's gone, friends, 
he's gone, and I don't think this col- 
lege yet realizes what it's lost. A 
man who refused sera to compromise his 
beliefs and principles in the face of in- 
tense administrative pressure. A man who 
had hoped to give his fellow students a 
greater say in their own governance and 
their own life at CLC. A man who, I feel, 
tried desperately to give the students 
of CLC an atmosphere in which they could 
truly grow as Christians and as humans. 
A man who found that he was no longer 
growing here, and who knew that as much 
as he wanted to stay, he couldn't. 

* * * 
It has come to my attention that peo — 
pie are starting to actually read the 
Echo! It could be because things are hap- 
pening on campus and the paper is report- 
ing them. It could be because people are 
airing their opinions about campus happen- 
ings. It could be because they have noth- 
ing else to do. It could be all these. 
Whatever the explanation may be for this 
unusual state of affairs, I certainly 
hope that it will continue. Keep reading. 
Keep writing. 

I'd like to remind everyone at this 
juncture of the meeting for the Echo this 
Sunday night at 7:30 in the Mountclef 
study room. Staff members are asked to be 
there. And if you'd like to helg with 
the Echo, why don't you come on in and let 
us know. As a matter of fact, if you'd 
only like to find otit what's happening with 
the paper, drop on by. We welcome all sug- 
gestions and all help. 

* * * 

I spend a lot of time sitting in the 
cafeteria because 1) I'd rather eat there 
than in the Echo office; 2) I enjoy wat- 
ching people walking by to meals; 3) and 
while I sit and eat and watch people, some 
of them stop and give me articles and/or 
their opinions about the previous week ' s 
issue. For example, this last week quite 
a few students had stopped to inform me. 
of their feelings about the two articles 
in Pravda written by A.C.I .D. (Alumni 
Coalition for Improved Directions) . Evi- 
dently, the things they had to say about 
CLC and the way its run and the students ' 
role in its manning touched a sensitive 
nerve. Personally, I didn't agree with 
too much of what they had to say, but 
they DID have something to say, and I wan- 
ted to give them a chance to voice their 
opinions. I also want to give their 
"loyal opposition" a chance to say their 
piece. So a reminder: letters to the 
editor are welcome. We can't print them 
if they're not signed, but otherwise 
we will put them it. Did you agree with 
ACID? Say so. You didn't? Tell us! In 

* * * 

Oh, and one other thing: the front page 
spread on Dean/Student relations, Presi- 
dent Olson's rdther frank reaction, and 
Dave Lewis's even franker re-reaction was 
not a one-shot deal. There's a LOT more 
to the story of administrative arm-twis- 
ting than has been exposed. Keep watching* 
future issues of the Echo for more. And 
more. And more.

It's an Idea! 

Let's put some "life" into life insurance 

That's what Lutheran students are 
thinking about . . . life. What's ahead. 
What good things are going to happen. 
A career. A wife. A home and family. 
And, believe it or not, life insurance 
from Aid Association for Lutherans is 
very much a living thing. First, it's 
the only guaranteed form of savings. 
You set your financial goal and com- 
plete it even if you become physically 
disabled. The money you put aside in 
life insurance can come in handy to 
help make a down payment on a home, 

buy a new car, provide an umbrella for 
a rainy day . . . even help send your 
own son or daughter to college. But 
the time to start is now when rates are 
the lowest they'll ever be for you, and 
your good health makes you insurable. 
It's an idea! And the idea man is your 
AAL representative . . . the man who 
tells the life insurance story the way 
it is . . . for the living. He's a fellow 
Lutheran and dedicated to common 
concern for human worth.

Bob Scheer received his BA in Economics and 
Political Science from City College of New York, 
and was appointed a Maxwell Fellow in Public Admin- 
istration at the Maxwell School of Government, Syra- 
cuse University, where he studied for one year. 
Then followed two additional years of graduate work 
at the University of California, Berkeley, where he 
was a Teaching Assistant in Economics, and a 
Fellow in the Center for Chinese Studies. He sub. 
sequently taught American Government at City College 
of New York. 

Mr. Scheer visited Castro's Cuba in 1960 and co- 
authored with Professor Maurice Zeitlin, CUBA: 
lished by Grove Press in 1961. A revised and ex- 
tended version entitled CUBA: AN AMERICAN TRA- 
GEDY was published by Penguin Books in 1962. 

He became Foreign Editors of RAMPARTS MAG- 
AZINE in 1965, was appointed Managing Editor in 

1966, and Vice President of the Corporation in 

1967. In his capacity as editor of RAMPARTS, Bob 
travelled and reported widely throughout the world. 
In spring of 1965 and again in 1966, he travelled to 
Southeast Asia, touring Vietnam and Laos. On his 
second trip, he also visited Cambodia at the invitation 
of Prince Sihanouk, whom he interviewed. Mr. Scheer's 
findings on Southeast Asia were published in a special 
report to the Center for the Study of Democratic 
Institutions in Santa Barbara. This report, HOW 
NAM is now in its sixth printing, and it is the

The California Lutheran College basketball team 
has a tough assignment this weekend. Coach Bob 
Campbell's Kingsmen host a rugged Azusa-Paclfic 
outfit Saturday in an 8:00 p.m. contest. 

Azusa-Pacific, 20-5 on the year, already holds 
two victories over Cal Lutheran, 92-61 at the Red. 
lands Tournament and 90-70 in regular season com- 
petition. The Azusans are led by Dennis Dickens 
who is averaging 24 points a game and Larry 
Vanzant who has hauled down over 11 rebounds 
a game. 

Co-captain Tim Iverson, though hampered by a 
knee injury, still leads CLC in scoring. The 5-11 
junior has scored 292 points in 20 games for a 
14.6 average. He has hit on 116 of 271 field goals 
and 60 of 88 free throws. 

Center Wayne Erickson continues to lead in re- 
bounding with 204 caroms in 23 games for an 
8.8 average. The 6-7 sophomore is second in scor- 
ing, averaging 9 points a game. 

As a team, the Kingsmen are shooting 40 per 
cent from the floor and 61 per cent from the line 
to average 65 points a game. Their record now 
stands at 5-18. 

In last weekend's action, Cal Lutheran dropped 
a pair of games, losing to La Verne 63-61 and UC 
San Diego 55-45. Against La Verne, Erickson pulled 
down 17 rebounds, his high for the year. 

Coach Bob Pitman's freshman team won their 
fourth straight game over the weekend, defeating La 
Verne 110-95, before losing to UC San Diego 74-69. 
The Knaves are now 6-13 on the year. 

The Kingsmen finish their season this week with 
games against UC San Diego (Feb. 24) and Westmont

The Kingsmen brought their season record to 
6-7-1 with a 36-6 win over the UCLA Frosh team 
last week. UCLA put only four men on the mat 
against the Kingsmen. Winning for CLC was Raul 
Rubalacava at 118 lbs. and Ken Wright at 150 lbs. 
The other two wins went to UCLA. 

The 69-70 season will climax this Saturday the 
28th at Claremont College where the District Tour- 
nament will be held. The Kingsmen have won the 
District Tournament three years running and hope 
to retain the championship again this year. Many 
of the injured wrestlers are returning and it is 
believed that Captain Chuck Lagamma will be ready 
for the competition this weekend. The proposed line- 
up for the tournament is Rubalacava, Quientmeyer, 
Haynes, Lagamma, Wright, Sowers, Lee, Lazaga, 
Standerfer, and Kelly. Come out and support your 
team! Wrestling begins at 10:00 a.m. Saturday and 
will continue into the night.

CLC Baseball Preview 

California Lutheran College baseball coach George 
Engdahl would like to make the NAIA District III 
Playoffs in his second year as pilot of the Kingsmen. 

Engdahl will field a young (ID underclassmen) but 
relatively experienced (10 lettermen) team this sea- 
son. The Kingsmen take on an ambitious 32-game 
schedule which includes games with Pacific 8 teams 
UCLA and University of Washington, the Azusa Paci- 
fie Tournament, and double-headers. 

Only two men are gone from last year's building 
team. All-District shortstop Larry Anderson and sec- 
ond baseman Bob Fulenwider, who was drafted by the 
St. Louis Cardinals, have graduated. A dozen veterans 
return, along with a pair of outstanding junior college 
transfers and seven freshmen. 

If the Kingsmen are to make the playoffs, they will 
have to come up with added pitching strength. Three 
experienced pitchers are back, including senior Bruce 
Thomas, junior Brock, and sophomore Tom Pete- 
lin, Depth will have to come from junior Gene Pfrim- 
mer, the only lefthander on the staff, sophomore 
Ernie White and freshmen Harvey Sneed of Pacoima 
and Bob Sprlngston of Glendora. 

Catching should be a strong point as the Kings- 
men are experienced and deep behind the plate. Jun- 
ior college transfer Craig Dombey, who was All- 
Conference at Glendale Community College in Phoe. 
nix, has been impressive in early workouts. Fresh- 
man Ed Copeland, who was AlLNorthern Bay League 
at Hogan High School in Vallejo, provides depth at

Replacing Anderson and Fulenwider in the Infield 
may take some doing. Seniors Larry Peoples and 
Randy Phares and freshman Mike Sheppard, who was 
captain of John Burroughs High School in Burbank, 
are working out at shortstop. Sophomore Ron Gold- 
en and freshman Roger Shoop, an AU-Bay League 
selection at Inglewood High School, are the leading 
candidates at second base. 

Junior Gary Stepan and freshman Kelly Fadler, 
the leading hitter for Thousand Oaks High School in 
1969 are at third base, while Kevin Woudenberg, a 
transfer from Mesa Junior College in Phoenix, has 
nailed down the first base position. 

There are both quality and quantity in the outfield 
as five sophomores are vying for the starting berths 
Bob Bivin and Tom Turk have the edge In center and 
right field respectively, John Stoddard has moved 
from first base to left field, and Mark Olson has 
moved out from catcher. Pitcher Tom Petelin will

Moen and freshman Mark Taylor. 

If Engdahl's "young veterans" come through as 
expected, they may have a shot at the Disl.-ict Play-

Vol. 9, No. 19, of the Mountclef Echo, the official news publication of the Associated Student 

Body of California Lutheran College, Thousand Oaks, California 91360 

By Dennis Tobin 

On Sunday, February 15, a 
small (less than twenty) but re- 
ceptive body of students gath- 
ered in the CUB to hear the 
Rev. Lester Kinsolving speak 
on the "Population Explosion." 
Kinsolving began his discussion 
by quipping that the preceeding 
week he spoke to "over 800" 
in Texas and that the small 
group was at least a "more 
intimate" surrounding. 

By way of personal introduc- 
tion Kinsolving related his back- 
ground and involvement in the 
area of social concern. He men- 
tioned his status as a member 
of California's committee on pop- 
ulation, which was the first state- 
conducted survey on population 
control, his participation as a 
moderator and columnist for the 
various mass media, and his 
association with Cesar Chavez 
and the United Farm Workers' 

The major portion of the pres- 
entation was devoted to birth 
control and legalized abortion 
and their respective roles in 
the controlling of over-popula- 
tion. Kinsolving's knowledge and 
involvement in the subject were 
quite apparant by his articulate 
and precise weavings of techni- 
cal terminology with pointed and 
classically simple analogies into 
a fine and closely woven fabric 
of illustration. 

He caustically criticised those 
exponents of the "papal victae" 
which bans birth control and 
abortion, noting that many of 
these papal supporters were of 
the "post menopause" group. He 
was highly critical of those mem- 
bers of the anti-abortion move- 
ment which reject legal abortion 
on the grounds that the fetus is 
a living being and that at the 
instant of conception it is an 
individual life form. Kinsolving 
noted that until the actual birth 
of the fetus, the embryo was 
in effect only "an appendage" 
of the female with no higher 
status than that of an arm or 
a leg. 

In criticising the "moment of 
conception" believers, he rela- 
ted an article in Reader's Di- 
gest in which the fetus related 
its daily existence up to the 
time of its abortion. . .at which 
time the now-defunct fetus states: 
"Today mommy killed me. . ." 
This prompted Kinsolving to men- 
tion the logical sequal to that 
article— "The Soliloquie of the 
Unfulfilled Sperm," in which "the 
sperm swims with its brothers 
and sisters up life's stream. . ." 
Kinsolving added that if the 
embryo is truly a human being, 
then it is only logical that the 
sperm of the male is also one. 
half of an individual living being. 

While speaking on the methods' 
of birth control Kinsolving dis- 
cussed the "Pill" and contracep- 
tives of the near future. He 
mentioned a newly developed pill 
which would be "implanted in 
the arm or buttock" of the female 
and which would be potent for up 
to fifteen years. This "implant," 
according to Kinsolving, would be 
removeable — under a doctor's 
supervision — at any time the 
female should desire fertility. 
He later noted that he would, 
if "the pill" should reach pro- 
duction, have his daughter "im- 
planted" so that she would be 
free to determine her own lim. 
itations without fear of being 

During this period of the pres. 
entation Kinsolving quipped that 
"the Pill is a contraceptive, 
not an aphrodisiac." This was 
in response to the common idea, 
especially among college health 
center officials, that the ". . . 
distribution of the pill on the north 
end of the campus will cause 
fornication on the south end of 
the campus. . ." 

Kinsolving also criticised the 
tax benefits given welfare reci- 
pients. He believes that deduc- 
tions should be given for the 
first two children, but that af. 
ter these there should be an 

On Group Prayer 

Many people criticize the 
Christians for violating the 
fllowing verse from Matthew: 
". . .when thou prayest, enter 
into thy closet, and when thou 
hast shut thy door, pray to thy 
Father which is in secret; and 
thy Father which seeth in secret 
shall reward thee openly." 

After a few more verses 
Matthew comes to the Lord's 
prayer: "After this manner 
therefore pray ye: Our Father 
..." The Lord's prayer is re- 
produced at another place in 
the Bible; it's at Luke 11:2-4. 
This brings up an important point 
in Bible study. Since the same 
prayer is printed in Matthew 
and Luke, but not in Mark, then 
the words come from Q, a book 
of sayings which was used by 
Matthew and Luke as a refer- 
ence source in writing their Gos- 
pels. Q is the first known book 
of recorded sayings by Jesus. 
The verses quoted in the top 
paragraph appear no where else 
in the Bible. As a saying of 
Jesus its authorship is at least 

The dictionary definition of 
prayer is: "an approach to deity 
in word or thought; an earnest 
request." Although it is not often 
that Jesus does not practice his 
preaching, apparently there is at 
least one place. In the Last 
Supper Jesus blesses the bread 
in the presence of his disciples. 
Next, look at the Lord's prayer 
itself. "Our Father. . .give us 
this day our daily. . .forgive us 
our debts, as we forgive our 
debtors. . .lead us not into. , . 
deliver us from. . ." All the 
pronouns are first person plural. 
What person in his right mind 
will say such a prayer when 
he is alone. 

The verse out of Matthew is 
taken out of the three chapters 
known as «*The Sermon on the 
Mount." Jesus is speaking to 
hundreds of people in the con. 
text of Matthew's Gospel. In or. 
der to say Matt. 6:6, Jesus must 
pick one man out of the crowd, 
and say this to him personally. 
Who was picked out? Could it be 
that the first manuscript of 
Matthew had pronouns that re. 
ferred to second person plural? 
Could it refer to a group meeting 
in a room? Read Matt. 6:5 & 6 
in the RSV. The verses can be 
interpreted in the plural. The 
RSV is supposed to be revised 
"compared with the most ancient 
authorities." It would be noted 
if the "you"" is singular. 

Another thing. Matt. 6:1 in 
KJV says, "Take heed that ye do 
not your alms before men, to 
be seen of them:. . ." Does this 
mean that others should not see 
you, or that you should not do it 
to be seen? RSV savs, "B eware 

assessment lor eacn additional 
child. • 

These were the more impor- 
tant points of the formal pres- 
entation and the floor was open- 
ed for questions. Mr. Wolfe began 
by noting, as Kinsolving has pre. 
viously mentioned, that popula- 
tion increases not liniearly but 
rather that population increases 
not linearly but rather geome- 
trically, and that even if parents 
had only two children this would 
not greatly reduce the popula- 
tion explosion. Kinsolving added 
that this was true, but that it 
was hoped that with some par- 
ents choosing not to bear chll- 
dren plus the normal death rate 
some degree of equilibrim might 
be attained. He agalnquippedthat 
the idea of colonizing the planets 
was no solution because each 
spaceship would have its own 
population crisis while it was 
en route. The question and ans- 
wer period continued a few more 
minutes and then the group broke 

The Commissioner for Aca- 
demic Affairs has worked very 
hard to bring articulate, well- 
informed and provocative speak- 
ers to CLC this year. A little 
support and interest would let 
him know he hasn't wasted his 
time and your money. 

piety before

of practicing your 
men in order to 
them;. . ." 

Finally in Luke 11:1, 2 "And 
it came to pass, that, as he was 
praying in a certain place, when 
he ceased, one of his disciples 
said unto him, Lord, teach us 
to pray as John also taught his 

"And he said unto them, When 
ye pray, say, Our Father. . ." 
You can see in that the first 
passage, at least one of his 
disciples was watching him pray. 
In the second, you can see that 
he is speaking to more than one 
disciple, because "ye" is a 
second person plural pronoun. 
There is enough information here 
to Imply that he is referring to 
group praying.

Robert E. Moe, General Manager of the Coeur 
d' Alene Summer Theatre, a muscial repertory com- 
pany in Northern Idaho, will hold auditions in Thousand 
Oaks the first week in April for singers, dancers, 
actors, musicians and technicians who are interested 
in joining the company for the 1970 season. 

Moe, a high school teacher who lives at 320 West 
Palizada, No. 3 in San Clemente, California, will 
be traveling over the Western part of the United 
States during the third and fourth weeks in March 
in order to interview applicants for the highly-reputed 
theatrical company that resides in Coeur de' Alene 
each summer. 

Anyone who is interested in applying should send 
a resume to Moe before March 15 so that he can 
schedule the auditions. 

Four musicals — "Hello, Dolly!" "Oliver, ""Guys 
and Dolls" and "Man of LaMancha" — will be pro. 
duced in repertory from July 3 through September 6. 
Rehearsals start June 15. 

The 16 company members, who in the past years 
have come from all parts of the United States, 
receive room and board and a small salary for 
their services. 

The company members will find themselves working 
with such fine musical comedy personnel as Tom 
Nash, who is presently finishing his doctoral work 
in theatre at the University of Florida; Valleda 
Woodhall, ex.professional dancer who appeared in 
the original London productions of "Brigadoon" and 
"Oklahoma"; and William Marvin, musical director, 
who lives and teaches in the Spokane area. 

Said Moe, "This is the sixth year for repertory 
summer theatre in Coeur d' Alene. Each year it has 
become more and more successful. Last year the 
group played to more than 6,000 people In the 190. 
seat theatre." 

Robert McLeod, who is a teacher in the Spokane 
Valley and who is a member of the Coeur d» Alene 
Community Theatre, is co-ordinator for the summer 
project. He said, "Company members not only have 
the opportunity to participate in a first-rate repertory 
theatre but also to take advantage of the terrific 
recreational activities that Coeur d' Alene has to 
offer." McLeod adds, "The semi-professional direc 
tors that are provided give company members a fine 
opportunity for theatrical growth. Robert Moe, of 
course, is a director of repute not only the North- 
west but also in Southern California." 

Alumni of Coeur d' Alene Summer Theatre who 
are now In New York working professionally include 
Jonn McEvoy, now with the Winged Victory Singers- 
his wife, Suzanne Dundas; Jan Hantzsche, originally 
from San Francisco; and Doug Houston. 

Warner Bros. 

Jerry Adler, producer of "Nobody Loves Flapping 
Eagle" for Warner Bros., has called upon the Holly- 
wood community to support the Indians on Alcatraz 
Island in San Francisco Bay following a visit there 
of two days and a night. 

Admitting that his interest in Indian matters evolved 
from his involvement in his newly completed pro- 
duction of "Nobody Loves Flapping Eagle," Adler 
urged all concerned members of the film industry 
"to show faith in the Indian takeover of the island 
and to. help wherever possible." 

While Adler was on Alcatraz, Anthony Quinn, who 
stars in "Flapping Eagle," visited the island to 
voice his support of the Indian movement. 

Adler and Quinn were given a detailed account 
of the Indians' plans for developing Alcatraz by 
Richard Oakes and Earl Livermore, the Indian lead- 
ers. Their program includes using Alcatraz as a cen- 
ter for native American studies, an American Indian 
spiritual center, an Indian center of ecology, an 
Indian training school and an American Indian museum.

Move To Lower AndSomeMurphyQuickies! 


Voting Age 

SACRAMENTO — Six Republican Assemblymen 
today introduced legislation which, if approved by 
the voters, would lower the age of adulthood in 
California from 21 to 19 years. 

Led by Assemblyman John V. Briggs (R-Orange 
and San Bernardino Counties), the bills introduced 
by the six Republicans would amend the California 
Constitution and related laws to make the age of 
adulthood 19 years. 

Joining Briggs as co-authors of this legislation 
were Assemblymen George W. Milias (R-Gilroy), 
Earle P. Crandall (R-San Jose), William Bagley 
(R-San Rafael), Patrick D. McGee (R-Van Nuys) 
and Frank Murphy Jr. (R.Santa Cruz). 

One effect of the Briggs proposal would be to 
lower the voting age to 19 years. The key differ- 
ences between the Briggs package and earlier propo- 
sals in this area are (1) the age would be lowered 
to 19, not 18, and (2) the voting age could not be low- 
ered without requiring the new voters to accept all 
the responsibilities of adulthood. 

Briggs last year carried a bill aimed solely at 
lowering the voting age and testified at hearings of 
the Assembly Elections Committee in favor of extend- 
ing the franchise to younger citizens. 

"We are now dealing with the broader question 
of adulthood, because I don't believe we should treat 
young people as adults on some matters and as 
juveniles on others. We should not give them the right 
to vote without requiring that they be fully responsible 
for their actions," Briggs said. 

"We shouldn't create special classes of citizen- 
ship," the author said. 

Briggs noted that nineteen is a more realistic 
point at which to demand people act like adults and 
to treat them as such than either 21 or 18. 

"At 18 many people are still in high school, 
living at home and dependent on their parents. At 
19 almost everyone Is out of high school. Men 
become eligible for the draft and many young people 
marry, start families, and start work — paying 
taxes just as adults do," Briggs said. 

"The great majority of people believe that if we 
lower the voting age, we should also lower the age 
of responsibility. They see the responsibilities of 
adulthood as the price a citizen pays for the vote. 
I think by approaching the issue on this basis we 
enhance its chances of passing because we broaden 
its base of support. 

"What we need is a broad re-examination of the 
starting points for adult responsibilities. This is 
the real question; voting is just a part of it," the 
lawmaker pointed out. 

As a constitutional amendment, the Briggs proposal 
must pass the Legislature by a two-thirds margin in 
both houses and be approved by the voters at the 
November election. 

"11 those who want to lower just the voting age and 
those who oppose any lowering of the voting age will 
take a new look at the question from this fresh per- 
spective, I think there is a very good chance we can 
get this on the ballot this year," Briggs predicted.

LOS ANGELES - U.S. senator ueorge Murphy, 
R.Calif , made quite a favorable impression on a 
young scholar from Oroville High School during 
a recent Northern California trip. 

Steve Howell, an honor student who covered an 
informal news conference held by the Senator, wrote 
In the Oroville Mercury-Register: 

"Upon taling with and listening to the Senator for 
just a little while, it was obvious he was extremely 
knowledgeable about international, national and state- 
wide problems of any consequence — Vietnam, the 
Middle East crisis, U.S. - Communist relations, water 
and air pollution, the national economic crisis, educa- 
tion, welfare, and his proclamation to the President 
declaring 14 counties in California disaster areas 
as a result of the recent flooding."

"Senator Murphy impressed me greatly because

The Senator said a number of times that he will 
be a candidate for a second term in the U.S. Senate. 
He repeated this statement during his trip throughout 
California last week. 

During the Lincoln Day week the Senator made 
nine speeches — in the San Francisco Bay area, 
the Northern Central Valley, Orange County, Los 
Angeles County and in the AnteloDe Valley. 

"At each appearance he attracted the biggest 
ever audience for similar events," Nesen said. 
"We think this demonstrates that the voters of Calif- 
ornia from both major political parties are anxious 
to express their high regard for Senator Murphy 

Nesen quoted an article that appeared in the 
Oroville Mercury-Register covering the Senators 
Chico speech to the Butte County Republican Central 
Committee. "Murphy was in good form and demon- 
strated that he is fit for the campaign now starting 
that will continue for nine long months. There seem- 
ed to be a feeling that, running with Governor Reagan, 
he will retain his seat in the Senate." 

The San Mateo Times article started by pointing to a 
turn-away crowd at a Burlingame Dinner sponsored by 
the San Mateo County Republican Central Committee 
and quoted Rep. Paul McCloskey, R-Calif., as saying 
Murphy was "the one man" who convinced President 
Nixon and the Bureau of the Budget that Point Reyes 
was worth savine for a park. 

It's an idea! 

Let's put some "life" into life insurance 

That's what Lutheran students are 
thinking about . . . life. What's ahead. 
What good things are going to happen. 
A career. A wife. A home and family. 
And, believe it or not, life insurance 
from Aid Association for Lutherans is 
very much a living thing. First, it's 
the only guaranteed form of savings. 
You set your financial goal and com- 
plete it even if you become physically 
disabled. The money you put aside in 
life insurance can come in handy to 
help make a down payment on a home, 

buy a new car, provide an umbrella for 
a rainy day . . . even help send your 
own son or daughter to college. But 
the time to start is now when rates are 
the lowest they'll ever be for you, and 
your good health makes you insurable. 
It's an idea! And the idea man is your 
AAL representative . . . the man who 
tells the life insurance story the way 
it is ... for the living. He's a fellow 
Lutheran and dedicated to common 
concern for human worth.

College life: a little prison 
rap. Prison is what our campus 
amounts to — to the free Individ, 
uals. Do you exist out there? 
Have you all been stymied — 
desensitized by the processes of 
non-education to realize what's 

Our trite little college com- 
munity has gotten hung up on 
restrictions and regulatory mea. 
sures (Kids just don't know how 
to handle life; how to control 
their emotions). Well babes, just 
don't let the people crucify your 
minds into a no-emotion thing 
— that's nowhere. Take heed on 
that bit from the numerous ex- 
amples of non-emotion which sur- 
round you. 

College should be a favorable 
environment where free natural 
creative experiences happen in 
an unrestricted manner. It is not 
a place where certain experi. 


ences are allowed to happen. 
This is what life is all about, 
people. Now is the time for you 
to learn how you will react nat- 
urally in certain situations; now 
is the time to see to what extent 
you can let your emotions 
thoughts carry you. Don't get 
screwed by some administration 
cats who don't have the faintest 
image of your mental patterns. 

On the other hand, you musn't 
be harsh on these old guys. 
Remember, they're doing (i.e., 
enforcing certain regulatory 
measures) for your own protec- 
tion and the protection of the 
whole family uni(y) bit. But is 
this what's really happening? 

Last week, a cute little new 
rule was added to the already 
tremendous list of protective 
measures. It is, in itself, rela- 
tively insignificant — but maybe 
you can perceive the full impll- 


cations of what's going on. Spe- 
cifically the extent of control 
which is being exerted over you, 
and especially, do you have any 
say in this control. The actual 
thing was: guards now unlock the 
front doors of Beta and Alpha 
dorms at 6 instead of 5 a.m. 
Why? No reason was given. What 
bothers me is why didn't they 
announce it? What are they trying 
to do, anyway? PROTECT ME? 
Is it to protect me or them- 
selves? Come on now, be real- 
istic. Meditate on it a little. 
Live your own life, and do it 
within your own boundaries. It 
is what you make it. What other 
restrictions exist that we don't 
know about? I wonder — I hope 
you're wondering too. Then may- 
be we can do something about it,

As the sun sinks slowly on the horizon, while the 
masked man rides out of town, the administration building 
is being overrun by hordes of angry students waving red

plastic telephone by Tonto, the perfect helper. All 
bars have been opened and a state of emergency has been 
declared indefinitely. The townspeople can be seen 
approaching from -the South end of the village, many 
carrying torches. As the grand Wizard pretends to 
speak, violent spasms of exhaustion echo from the court- 
yard. The Great Exquisitor rises to speak. His words 
ring out like small lead projectiles spent from a 
raging machine-gun. The delegation of townspeople, 
.drawing nearer, cannot yet be heard. Without warning, 
the dawn arrives accompanied by a sense of serenity 
throughout the countryside. There is no shot, but 
the rebel leader is felled by a silver bullet. He 
is killed instantly. Order is restored. The world 
has been made safe for democracy.

was appalled by the antl-Christlan

noun proceeded by "goddam." 
"Open da goddam gate!" "Ya

situation. I was immediately ac- 
costed by a rather well-to-do 
looking student. . .He wanted a 
dime. What could cause this state 
of affairs? 

Elbowing my way to the head 
of the crowd, I was confronted 
by one innocuous • looking ma- 
chine and forty - seven mouths 
screaming, "Try it! Try it!"and 
"Gimme a game! Gimme two 
balls! One ball?" 

Well of course I had to try It. 
A dime in the slot, then GRIND 

I fired up the first ball and was 
instantly amazed by the amount 
of adrenalin rushing through my 
system. "Hit da goddam advance! 
Hit da 300 slot." Hands frozen, 
I stared as the ball slipped 
through the flippers. Could I take 
this for four more balls? 

Number 2 ball was off and, 
after an orgasm of ringing bells 
and screaming voices, It ap- 
proached the flippers. Instinct 
told me to activate the flippers 

and the voices told me that I 
had "opened da goddam gate." 

Three more balls and two rock- 
ets later, I thought all was lost. 
THen a number lit up on the 
scoreboard. It was the last one 
in my score, and I discovered that 
I had a match. I was hooked. 

Two thirty that night, I crawled 
beneath my blankets and shook 
with the prospect of my next 
try at the machine. 

Yes. . . I was a plnball wizard.

A View Of Life 

Gregory N. McCallon 

As I emerge from the smoldering pot of 
life, I am less watched and guided by the 
helping hand. 

As I cool I can feel the stresses and 
strains of life's great abundance of burden 
being cast upon me. Then I focus upon 
the future and I can see the rust of time, 
slowly taking its never ending never stopping 

course. .. . 

I turn for I can look no more, the iust 
of time has consumed all and all is but dust 
once again, to start and regenerate the 
smoldering pot of life. 

Thus life in itself, is the never ending 
alwavs generating circle of dark mystery, 
that 'stirs men's souls and finally engulfs 
all unto its bosom. 

Dr. Peale & Generation Gap 


A national student film competition, a film 
festival, and an institute, all in honor of 
silent film pioneer D.W. Griffith, will be 
held at the University of Louisville, Louis- 
ville, Ky., the week of May 11. 

The announcement was made on the anni- 
versary of the 95th birthday of the late 
Griffith, the internationally famous film- 
maker who was a Louisville native. The 
joint announcement was made by Dr. Wil- 
liam C. Huffman, Dean of the University 
College at the University of Louisville, 
and Lee Browning, Vice President and sta- 
tion manager of WAVE-TV, a Louisville 

The D.W. Griffith Student Film Festival 
is open to film-makers from anywhere in 
the United States. No institutional affilia- 
tion is necessary to enter any of the five 
categories. A total of $2,500 in prize money 
will go to the winners. The money was 
made available by co-sponsor WAVE-TV, 
which will also award at least one summer 
internship position in its Special Projects 


Afternoons will feature screenings of major 
films that relate to that morning's activi- 
ties. The Institute members will also view 
the screenings of the competition films and

standing films of the competition. A small 
fee will be charged for the non-credit In- 
stitute. Applications and information may 
be obtained by writing the D.W. Griffith 
Film Institute at the above address. 

The events honoring Griffith were orig- 
inated by Walt Lowe of WAVE -TV's Spe- 
cial Projects Department. Mr. Lowe is 
an expert on Griffith, who directed among 
the greatest early film classics, Including 
Intolerance and Birth of a Nation. He work- 
ed with Huffman, Morris Bein, Chairman 
of the University of Louisville's Division of 
Humanities, Robert Doherty, Chairman of 
the Department of Fine Arts, Leon V. Dris- 
kell of the English Department, and Robert 
McMahan of the Music History Department.

Festival and Institute. During mornings, 
Institute registrants will participate in dis- 
cussion and practical sessions in filmmaking

PAWLING, N.Y. — One of the world's most 
famous clergymen has entered the debate 
over the generation gap with a word of sup- 
port for young people and an appeal to 
youth to let their parents do their own 
"thing" too. 

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale declared that 
inhibited adults are as much to blame as 
uninhibited youth for the lack of communi- 
cations between generations. 

At the same time, he calls on youth to 
remember that "parents are also people." 
He urges them to think of their parents 
as men and women rather than mothers 
and fathers, letting them "be their own 
persons and accept them for what they 

Dr. Peale, minister of Marble Collegiate 
Church in New York, author of best-selling 
books, columnist and lecturer, has responded 
to growing expressions of concern about 
the generation gap with a "mini-booklet" 
dealing with both sides of the problem. 

Entitled Tune in on Life — You and the 
Generation Gap, the booklet is being dis- 
tributed by the Foundation for Christian 
Living, the nonprofit organization that prints 
and disseminates Dr. Peale's sermons and 
other writings on a regular basis to more 
than 500,000 people in nearly 110 countries. 

In Tune in on Life, Dr. Peale declares 
that while youth and their parents must 
learn to understand one another, there is 
much to be said on the side of "offbeat 
young people." 

"Of course, he acknowledges, "we've got 
to admit that some do go to extremes, 
but actually young people don't bother me 
too much in this respect. Youth is the 
natural time for experimentation. It's the 
time for them to kick up their heels and 
to try to find out who they really are. 

"What does bother me is not so much 
our 'uninhibited youth,' but our inhibited 
adults. Every day I meet someone who 
seems unhappy or frustrated about some- 

Dr. Peale finds that many adults are 
"just plain afraid to be themselves," while 
large numbers of young people are finding 
sources of satisfaction and happiness some 
adults have not experienced. 

"There is a great good In the young 
person today," he observes. "For one thing, 
he believes that love and sharing and rela- 
tlonships with other people on an honest 
basis are necessary for the creation of a 
better world." 

While it is true that millions of young men 
and women lack positive goals, personal 
convictions and reasons for living and thus 
have become "dropouts," he says, most of 
them are actively searching for a meaning, 
ful way to live.

tained free of charge by writing Box T,

No Alternative To Imperfection? 


The insights of radical theology, psy- 
choanalysis and Jewish tradition are blended 
— perhaps for the first time — In an 
authoritative, highly readable analysis of 
the everyday problems of personal and fam- 
ily life published today by McGraw-Hill: 
Morality and Eros by Richard L. Ruben- 
stein ($5.95). 

Rabbi Rubenstein, who is director of 
B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation and adjunct 
in the Humanities at the University of Pitts- 
burgh, examines the gap between traditional 
values and the realistic need of the con- 
temporary Jew and Christian for insight 
and guidance. 

"We are not the kind of people our grand- 
parents were," the author notes. "... The 
techno-cultural revolution of our times has 
radically altered our environment, the ways 
in which we encounter it, and, consequently, 
our very identities." 

Among the decisive transformations of our 
time Rubenstein highlights the psychological 
and moral consequences of the contracep- 
tive pill, the communications revolution, 
the collapse of authority, and the arrival 
of a moment in human history which he 
calls, "the last days." 

"Instantaneous mega-murder can now be 
inflicted on whole nations. The built-in res- 
traints to aggression operative in hand-to- 
hand combat with a single individual do not 
work where millions of lives are at stake. 
The computer, the rocket, the nuclear bomb, 
and other refinements of electronic tech- 
nology make mass death possible through a 
mere hand-motion .... Every day is 
potentially our last." 

In the light of such apocalyptic threats, 
and in view of the religious skepticism and 
pessimism which prevail, the author con- 
tends that man today requires a measure 
of practical wisdom for which traditional 
experience is at best only partially adequate 
in the areas of self-knowledge, personal 
encounter, marriage and the family, business 

and professional life. 

"Our most agonizing problem may very, 
well be our extraordinary freedom," he 
writes. "We need no longer worry about 
incurring God's wrath .... We pay a 
heavy price for this freedom." 

Rubenstein doubts our ability to create a 
new system of values adequate to cope with 
the stresses and opportunities of our times: 
"There are too many people with too many 
radically different backgrounds, personali- 
ties, and needs for any one set of values 
to be the new way. Instead, we may require 
a number of alternative systems of insight 
with which to confront the human condition 
with as much responsible fulfillment and 
gratification and as little resentment, self- 
deception and self-pity as possible." 

In Morality and Eros, the author attempts 
to formulate one such system of insight. 
The table of contents provides an enlighten, 
ing guide to the path followed by his scholar- 
ly, provocative and inspiring trend of through: 
"If There Is No God All Things Are Per- 
missible . . ."; "Situation Ethics and the 
Ironies of Altruism;" "The Uses and Abuses 
of Aggression;" "Work Is More Than 
Living;" "The Promises and the Pitfalls 
of Eros;" "Marriage: Prison or Promised 
Land?"; "The Promise and the Pathos of 
Divorce." "Our Tribal Society;" 'The 
Cave, the Rock, and the Tent: The Meaning 
of Place in Contemporary America;" "God 
After the Death of God." " 

Rabbi Rubenstein, author of two previous 
books: After Auschwitz and The Religious 
Imagination, offers an uncompromising, cour- 
ageous conclusion after evoking and attempt- 
ing to solve numerous problems. It is that 
"we must foresake the quest for redemption 
and accept life with its limitations and 

"It is better that the Messiah tarry. 
His kingdom is not of this world. Let us 
endure its wounds and celebrate its joys 
in undeceived lucidity."

Hayakawa Demonstra tion In T.O. 

By Gary Wooster 

On the 
speak at 

night of March 6, S.I, Hayakawa came to 
a $25.-a-plate dinner at Los Robles Inn 
in Thousand Oaks. Sixty to seventy demonstrators 
came to show him that he wasn't wanted in Thousand 
Oaks, or anywhere else. The demonstrators came 
from Moorpark College, CLC, and the community. 

A picket line was formed at about 6:45. As the 
people attending the dinner were arriving some of 
the demonstrators asked them why they came to 
support a fascist and told them "You don't belong 
here. Go home." 

One of the people attending the dinner, a Marie 
McCormick, screamed at the demonstrators calling 
one of them "you little ." She then began 

hitting one of the demonstrators screaming "I'll 
take all you on at once." The exact 

reason for this attack is a mystery. No one assaulted 
either physically or verbally. Her attack was totally 
uncalled for. She was between 60 and 65 and quite 
well dressed; however her language reflected neither 
her age nor social position. Apparently she lacked 

Also during the picketing one of the professors 
from CLC was intentionally struck by a car driven 
by one of those who came to here Hayakawa speak. 

The car did not stop and the occupants gave him 
very dirty looks. Luckily for him it only grazed him 
and was going slowly. Another demonstrator was 
almost struck by another car but he was warned In 
time and barely averted being hit. 

The demonstration was alsocoveredbyKVENradlo. 
When the newsman was asked why he was there he 
said that he came to cover Hayakawa and also the 
demonstration. OHowever he never went inside to 
see Hayakawa.) He said that he expected the demon, 
stratlon to be peaceful and that there was no reason 
for there to be violence there (as there wasn't 
except for that perpetrated by those attending the 

Another person interviewed was one of the repre- 
sentatives of the California Teacher's Association 
of Ventura County. He said that he came to hear 
Hayakawa speak. He did not agree with the demon- 
stratlon and felt that Hayakawa had a job to do and 
was doing his best. 

None of the demonstrators saw S.I. Hayakawa 
arrive at the Inn. He had snuck in the back way by 
a back road. And undoubtedly planned to leave the 
same way. 

On Wednesday, March 4th, Robert Scheer brought the following 
list of impressive credentials to CLC as the second feature speaker 
of the week to be presented by the Concert-Lecture Series. 
Mr. Scheer was in Cuba (1960) after Castro's revolutionary 
forces came to power, and with material gained from this visit 
co-authored Cuba: Tragedy in Our Hemisphere with Prof. M. 
Zeitlin (Grove Press, 1961). This book was later revised (1962) 
and published by Penguin Books under the title Cuba: An American 

In 1965 Mr. Scheer became Foreign Editor of Ramparts 
magazine, and in continuing this relationship, he became Mana- 
ging Editor (1966) and Vice President of the Corporation (1967). 
During this period he visited S.E. Asia, including Laos, North 
Viet Nam, and Cambodia at the invitation of Prince Sihanouk. 
His report of this trip was sent to the Center for the Study of 
Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara. How the U.S. Got 
Involved in Viet Nam is now in its sixth printing and has sold 
over 135,000 copies. 

In 1967 Mr. Scheer toured the Near East immediately follow, 
ing the six-day Israeli war. He is extremely active in the 

"New Politics" and as a congressional candidate he tallied 
45 per cent of the primary vote against the incumbant candidate. 
Mr. Scheer is presently considering entering the Senatorial race 
as a Peace and Freedom candidate. Other writings by Scheer 
include — editor of The Diary of Che Guevara and the Post 
Prison Writings of Eldridge Cleaver, he is chairman of the 
Eldridge Cleaver Defense Committee. 

With this background Mr. Scheer stands as one of the most 
informed members of California's "New Politics." The lecture 
was originally planned forthe gym, but uncorrectable microphone 
problems forced the moving of the presentation to the CUB. 
The move to the CUB served a purpose beyond the elimination 
of mike troubles, it made the small student and community 
group more close knit and informal. 

If a central theme could be found in Mr. Scheer's presentation, 
it was rather impromptu, it was that we are in a ". . .severe 
period of history. . ." where ". . . repressions are raised 
against people who question the status-quo. . ." He followed 
this by stating ". . . the majority don't give a damn. . ." they 
"... do not know of the repression and they don't like radicals." 
To back this contention he cited the resurrection of the outside 
agitator theory, pointing specifically to the trial of the Chicago 
Seven and the unconstitutional persecution of Bobby Seale. 

In regards to the Chicago Seven, Scheer stated that ". . .they 
were tried for trying to stop the war. . ." and that ironically no 
one has ". . .tried American politicians for killing over one 
million in Viet Nam . . I" He continued, "There is extreme irony 
in America's process of purging . . .," noting that no Nuremburg 
type trials are being conducted, in regards to American action 
in Viet Nam and our Breaking of the 1954 Geneva Accords, today, 
like the ones we fabricated against the Nazi Germans following 
World War II. 

The trial of the Chicago Seven, he noted, was "The first public 
announcement of a political trial. . .bals lies on the politics of 
the court. . ." This would seem then to brand all political 
dissentors as criminals. Having been In Chicago during the 
Democratic Convention, he stated that there were ". . .never 
more than 400 radicals in Chicago, . . .the riot was an attempt 
at being political, after the Mobilization cancelled the demon. 


(The special meeting of the Convocators 
of California Lutheran College, March 1-2, 
1970, provided the occasion for an address 
by President Raymond M. Olson entitled, 
"The Bias of CLC." This is the text of that 
address, with minor changes to fit a written 
form rather than a spoken one, as it has 
taken shape from outlined notes.) 

California Lutheran College has a bias. 
A great many colleges and universities have 
biases, If not all. A bias is defined as "A 
mental leaning or inclination; partiality; pre- 
judice." The surprise ought not to be in 
knowing that such partiality exists in a col- 
lege, but In the ready acknowledgement that 
It is so. It is this characteristic about this 
college that has brought many administrators, 
many faculty and many students to have a 
part in its Hie. 

Somewhere along the way I picked up a 
wise observation: "People never define what 
they take for granted. It is only when the 
accustomed and the familiar is challenged 
that an attempt has to be made to say what 
it means and why It is important." 

There are a good many who have taken 
for granted that the nature of CLC's lean- 
lngs are self-evident. This has been my ten- 
dency. W'e live In times however when most 
of the established forms and Institutions 
which have given shape to our existence 
are under challenge. It should be no great 
surprise that there may come confusion on

stratlon. . ." Continuing, . . ."tactics of street demonstrators 
(were) forced by the government's lack of policy concern. . . 
we are left no alternatives. . ." 

Scheer strongly believes that it is the attempt at being political 
that precipitates the repressional. He chlded the idea that outside 
agitators are instant radicals, pointing again to the Chicago 
Seven and to their positions In 1964's Presidential race, when at 
least one of them was an active Johnson campaigner. The change 
to radical occurs only after the attempt at being political. 

Following the course of the repression, Mr. Scheer stated, "The 
main repression is against the Panthers. . .our main (the Left's) 
action should be to end the repression of the Panthers." 
In the case of Bobby Seale this repression occurred as a $25,000 
bail bond for a traffic violation," The double standard being 
imposed "because he got political." The Panthers are repressed 
because they will not bow to government, "they cannot get the 
government off their bakes without selling out." According to 
Scheer the Panther repression occured only after they began their 
Breakfast for Children program (which did not Involve govern- 
ment and whose active success government could not match). 

Again illustrating how attempting to become political incites 
repression, Scheer cited the People's Park Massacre, which left 
in its wake over 100 wounded and one dead (James Rector, Black, 
shot in back). "People's Park threatened private property. . .' 
reason for violence. . .took the glove off of society. . .as people 
became organized and political. . .government became restless 
. . .wears blinders!" 

In relation to the Left, Scheer noted, ". . .there is no uniform 
line of action. . .radical action must be understood and grow out 
of the people." Continuing, ". . .must be in the business of 
reaching people. . ," its ". . . obligation before Revolution is 
to help those who are struggling. " "The New Left was a natural 
development of people talking." "American history is a lie. . . 
American Empire is an accident to preserve freedom. . . 
(e.g. California state colleges and universities now attempt to 
cancel presentations of radical speakers, S.I. Hayakawa's closing 
of all legitimate channels, an action, according to Scheer, which 
is a legitimate progenitor of using extra-legal means, etc.). 
Scheer stated, however, that the "Left has failed because it has 
not pushed beyond confrontation politics to explain why con- 
frontations are used." 

This was generally the pattern of the presentation, during 
the question and answer period a Moorpark student asked 
"V\hat can the Thousand Oakies do?" In response Scheer said 

Throw the rhetoric back in society's face." He proposed as 
mentioned above, the attempt of legitimate channels recourse 
but that if these channels were closed, to ". . .struggle by any 
means possible. .1" "The repression proves the success of 
the Left. . .1 don't think the repression will work. . .new levels 
of leaders are coming from the street. . .we don't need leaders 
. . .struggle by any means possible!" 

Added notes on CLC and religious educational institutes: 
. . .exist off mothers and fathers. . ." 

". . .outside speakers are not necessary if the school has 
exciting programs, professors, . . ." 

And especially to CLC — "I don't know if you have a curfew. . ." 









Robert Scheer, who lias been the foreign 
editor, managing editor and vice president 
of Ramparts magazine, spoke In the CLC 
gym on Wed., March 4, at 8:00, about "What's 
Left Today?" Mr. Scheer visited Castro's 
Cuba In 1960 and co-authored with Prof. 
Maurice Seitman Cuba: Tragedy In Our 
Hemisphere. He has been to Southeast Asia 
twice, once in the spring of 1965 and again 
in 1966. From these trips he wrote How the 
United States Got Involved In Vietnam. In 
1966 he ran in the Democratic primary for 
the seventh congressional district of Calif, 
ornia and got forty-five per cent of the vote. 
He Is thinking of running for U.S. senator 
on the Peace and Freedom Party. 

Gerald Rea of the Concert-Lecture Com- 
mittee introduced Mr. Scheer at 8:10. Mr. 
Scheer rose to speak and there followed 
seventeen minutes of mike trouble. It was 
finally decided to move to the CUB. The 
lecture finally started at 8:40 In the CUB 
when Mr. Scheer said, "The whole reason 
for speaking in the gym was that it had a 

Mr. Scheer talked about what the Left 
Is and why it is. He stated that he believes 
that we are in a period of severe repression 
and that it is mainly aimed "Against those 
people who threaten the status quo." He said 
that most people do not realize that there 
Is any repression because since they are 
content with the status quo they never do 
anything that brings the repression down on 
them. "Only when people try to move poll- 
tically do they discover repression." 

Mr. Scheer went on to reveal that the 
basic freedoms that one thinks one has 
really do not exist. "Most of the things 
that we were raised to cherish turned out to 
be a con. . . Freedom of speech Is unim- 
portant if you don't have a media network" 
• and that Is why confrontation tactics are 
used. They get media attention and that is 
the only way the majority of the people 
will discover that something is wrong. If 
you don't have media attention few people 
even hear of your opinions and arguments. 
He said that the most important aspect of 
the trial of the "Chicago Seven" was that it 
proved to all America and forced them to 
admit that this country does have political 
trials and political prisoners. 

He stated that the systematic destruction 
of the leadership of the Black Panthers 
was because they could not be bought off 
or co-opted. The reason given by the Estab. 
lishment for the attacks on the Black Pan- 
thers, that they are a disciplined organiza- 
tlon, does not hold up when tney are com- 
pared to the U.S. organization of Ron Car. 
anga. The U.S. organization is much more 
disciplined than the Panthers and also carry 
guns and have killed many Panthers, but they 
are not subject to attacks of their head- 
quarters or a systematic destruction of 
their leadership. The U.S. organization ac 
cepts government funds and can be co- 
opted while the Panthers cannot. 

He also spoke about what he had seen in 
Cuba and what the U.S. is doing to that 
country and why. The U.S. Is trying to des. 
troy that country, and the reason Is that it 
could be the first truly democratic social. 
1st country. 

His speech ended at about 9:25 and a 
question and answer period followed for an 
hour and a half. 

In answer to one question he said, 
"I don't see where the repression is work- 
lng. . .The leadership of the Black Panthers 
is being systematically destoryed and yet 
there's a whole new level of leaders com- 
ing up." And In some ways they're even 
more effective than those that came before. 
Another major point he brought up was 
that "we look at what has happened to 
the Cuban economy and we have a case of 
the most powerful country in the world 
trying to crush one of the smallest coun- 
tries in the world and using every economic 
trick and bit of sabotage that it can." 
The question and answer period came to 
a halt at about 11:20. 

It was an Invigorating experience listen- 
lng to at last hear a member of the New 

Left speak here at CLC. I hope that Mr. 
Scheer Is not the last such speaker.

the part of some who look at CLC and fail 
to discern its essential partiality, in the 
midst of Its openness to truth. 

This bias is reflected plainly in the Art- 
lcle on Purpose in the Articles of Incor- 
poration, filed with the State of California: 
"The specific and primary purpose for which 
the corporation is formed is for the estab. 
lishment and maintenance of an institution 
of higher education of collegiate grade, op- 
erated for the best Interests of youth of 
the Lutheran Church, the community, the 
state and the nation, and governed in har- 
mony with the Christian faith as Interpreted 
and taught by the Lutheran Church." 

Without attempting to identify all the facets 
of that statement of purpose of the college, 
we will note a few of them. 1) It is a part 
of the bias of CLC, a part of the way it 
leans, that the bulk of the people involved 
In its life and work believe in the reality 
of God for man - for every man. We expect 
to come to terms with Him, to have a re- 
lationship with Him, to be His people, to 
know His truth and serve His purposes. 
This is not a place that requires this kind 
of commitment in order to be here, for we 
know so well that faith cannot be ordered or 
commanded. We intend to be a place of 
openness where the real truth of the uni- 
verse, of man and God will be explored. 
At the same time we say to those who 
come, this is what CLC is like. 
(2) It Is also a part of the tendency of 
this place that the large part of us believe 
in the reality of the people of God. We are 
convinced that there are people, usually with. 
In the churches but sometimes outside them, 
who fit such a description. The pages of 
Scripture tell of their presence and the 
characteristics which they have. It is our 
understanding that God does draw His peo- 
pie to each other, that they have His mark 
In the fundamental attitudes and commit- 
ments in their lives. We expect that the 
presence of the people of God on this cam- 
pus, with such encouragement as they may 
find here, will give a special shape to our 
purpose and goals. Further, we understand 
this reality as bridging all human differences 
and boundaries, binding us together with oth. 
er men with whom we may not otherwise 
have much in common. 

3) It is also a part of our bias that we 
believe some things about man as they are 
typically expressed and understood in our 
churches. On the one hand we are not 
surprised at the best and the finest achieve, 
ments of man individually or corporately. 
We accept the idea that man has remark- 
able potential for achievement, that such pos. 
slbilities continually break loose and produce 
startling and wonderful results. We live here 
at CLC with the expectation that this can 
happen to any of us, for this is what we 
were made to be by our Creator. At the 
same time we are not surprised at the worst 
which man does, for the signs are present 
throughout history and in contemporary life, 
that evil can take over the mind and work 
of man. We recognize that none of us are 
exempt from this duality of our nature. 
The Christian purpose of this college is par- 
tlcularly directed toward having us under- 
stand these two sides of ourselves and oth- 
ers. The creating and redeeming God is a 
continual part of this understanding. 

4) Further, it is a part of our partialfty 
that we look at the world for what it is: 
in desperate trouble yet always loved by God. 
We admit the sweltering heat and filth of 
poverty in the world. We recognize the 
strange goals of our culture. We have no 
doubts about the presence of the immoral 
and perverse in human life. We see the signs 
of the perversion of love and freedom which 
have overtaken us. The nations continue their 
death-dance with the tragedy of war shown 
so fearfully In the media which shares our 
lives. There Is a sickness in the world 
which cannot be ignored. The bias of this 
college is that it is realistic about the world, 
with no surprise about the trouble which is 
around. Each generation may have contributed 
its own share to the state of affairs but 
the impact of this one will not be funda- 
mentally different from other generations. 
The wonder of the Christian faith is that 
man can believe in a God that cares about 
just such a situation, in every generation. 
This is our biased look at our age. It is 
shaped by the Gospel of the love of God. 
in Christ. 

5) May we add that it is a part of our bias 
that we believe we have a mission in this 
age, as it is seen in Christian terms. We 
have a mission to understand this age, 
to do our best at CLC to comprehend what 
is happening, good and bad, hopeful and 
destructive. It will not be right to pass it 

by. We have a mission to serve this age 
by educating some of our young people to 
find their place In such a time as respon- 
sible, Informed, self-giving and highly mot- 
ivated human beings. We will not know, each 
day, how well we accomplish this task, but 
this does seem to be our mission. It is 
also a part of this mission to keep the 
church . the people of God • centered on 
the Importance of learning, the value of 
doubt and change. CLC ought to accomplish 
this for the people who share in the found- 
ing and supporting of this college. It has 
as a part of Its mission the stirringof learn- 
ing in such a way that it contributes to the 
renewal of the church, the renewal of faith 
and dedicated service. We have a mission 
to express an attitude toward learning, that 
it finally leads to God, that it is finally 
fitted together in God, that Its final purpose 
Is to do the work and will of God. 

6) Place a cap on this list of biases by 
seeing this college as a place of hope. 
The difficulties of modem life are no worse 
than those which the people of God have 
faced In many places on the globe over 
decades and centuries. We may be puzzled, 
we may be frustrated, we may have great 
differences In our understanding of events 
and philosophies. Yet we live with confidence 
which has its source and strength in the 
presence of God among us. 

With this frank and open recognition of 

our common purpose and nature at CLC 

I would like to have you look with me at 

the horizon ahead and the things we should 

expect of each other. Somewhere once I 

found a poem called "The Ploughman" by 

Karle Wilson Baker. A part of it reads: 

"God will not let my field lie fallow. 

The ploughshare is sharp, the feet of 

his oxen are heavy; 

They hurt, 

But I cannot stay God from His ploughing, 
I. the lord of the field. 
While I stand waiting, 
His shoulders loom upon me from the 

He has gone past me down the furrow, 
shouting a song! 
I had said, it shall rest for a season. 
The larks had built in the grass . . . 
He will not let my field lie fallow!" 
What is ahead of us? What is our field 
like? What Is California Lutheran College 
called to be and do? For those of us who 
are committed to the life and future of 
this colleee. what should we exoect? It does 
seem fair to say that we will not "stay. 
God from Hie ploughing-/' We may be in- 
c lined to dally, to spend our time in analysis 
or complaint. We may want to "rest for a 
season." But I wonder If we do not have a 
profound sense that the shoulders of God are 
looming upon us, that He will not wait in 
the mission to which CLC has given itself. 
What is ahead of us? The political forces 
of this nation, with all their diversity, are 
moving strongly ... and strangely . . . 
and fearfully. Into this turbulence need to 
go people with real understanding of these 
forces, and their moods; people with stable 
values, steeped in the Christian way; peo- 
ple ready to give their lives and talents to 
seek the good of the people. 

What is ahead of us? The forces of social 
change are moving just as strongly . . . 
and strangely. There is a cry for justice 
and righteousness for all our people in 
this land. The ways of the past are being 
tested and often found wanting. Into this 
uncertain time of change we need to have 
a special kind of people who care. Ought 
they not be those who have learned the 
lessons of justice and mercy from the best 
spiritual insights of race? Ought they 
not be those who have spent enough time 
confronting Christ to know His compas- 
slon and His indignation? Ought they not be 
those who have had glimpses into what be- 
ing human can be, in its best and highest 

What is ahead of us? The hunger for a 
community of nations, sprinkled with the 
fears and doubts of men who have so often 
been broken by other men. The terrible 
need of ending international conflict and es- 
tablishing the forms under which nations can 
resolve their angers and injustices. Into this 
people must go with an understanding and 
patience and sense of the Tightness of peace 
which will commit them to this task with 
eagerness and vision. 

What is ahead of us? The possibility of 
touching the lives of young men and women 
who may do these things and many others 
like them, and accomplishing this within 
and out of the special partiality which be- 
longs to tills college. If this is to come 
about then we must have the best we can get 
in the quality of the people who share the 
process of learning here, and the best we 
can provide of the tools with which they will 
work. The goals are worth the best we can

HE FLAT EARTH SOCIETY is bigger than you think. Almost every- 
one belongs, because, as Euclid noted, a plane is infinite. Consider 
the advantages: 

Infinite air supply, capable of absorbing any amount of nitrogen and 
sulphur oxides, hydrocarbon residues, etc., with no ill effects. 

Rivers without end, sufficient to carry any amount of sewage and 
industrial waste to an infinite ocean, too large ever to be polluted. 

Unlimited forests and grasslands capable of enduring unlimited ex- 

An infinite frontier, always someplace new to go and leave behind 
noise, garbage, chemical and radioactive poisons, famine, war; an 
earth which can support an unlimited population. 

The Flat Earth Society has much to offer, if you just accept its social illusions 
and reject the "optical illusion" above. It has strong institutional support: steel 
companies (strip mining, air pollution), oil companies (offshore drilling, air 
and water pollution), aircraft companies (the SST, noise and air pollution), 
some organized religions (anti-birth control), automobile, lumber, real estate 
interests, etc., etc. 

Conservationists are the spoil-sports. They see limits everywhere. They are: 
paranoid (distrust technological tampering with the environment), socialistic 
(reject the right of private owners to plunder the earth), hippy (take to woods 
to escape "progress") and fanatic (wage militant fights against the destruction 
of the earth's ecology). 



Throughout this spring, and especially on April 22, Round Earthers on hundreds of campuses will join in a 
NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL TEACH-IN to explore nature's law of limits. This can be a historic break- 
through in understanding all that is needed to have a whole and healthy earth. 

The Sierra Club, a young, 77-year old Round Earth Society, hopes you will participate - that everyone on 
your campus will seize this opportunity to learn ways to protect the environment. 

To help you, the Sierra Club has prepared an environmental activist's handbook - ECOTACTICS. It will 
arm you to take the initiative to combat Flat Earth thinking: to find out how to keep your life-support system 
intact. ECOTACTICS will soon be available at your local bookstore. 


You can: Read ECOTACTICS. Help your campus conservation group (if there is one; if not. form one., 
Make April 22 the launch date for an ecologically sound future. Contact environmental scientists and other 
concerned members of your faculty to develop informed and effective ecotactics. Find out what is planned for 
April 22 on neighboring campuses and offer to help them. Enlist their help. 

Many Round Earth Societies 
have long been carrying on the 
fight against degradation of the 
environment. Alone they can- 
not shatter the illusions of Flat 
Earthlings. They need the ener- 
gies of the New Generation 
which, with luck, will inherit 
the spaceship earth. So join and 
support one of the Round Earth 
groups. Or two of them. Or

Watermelon's ^*~^ 


The purpose of this column, which will hopefully appear on a 
weekly basis, Is to bring to light the Invaluable thoughts of 
Watermelon. Every day I hear things which are probably true 
but cannot be proven for reasons which will become obvious. 
I see no reason for secrecy at CLC, and I will try to publish 
those things that I have heard which others should know about. 
At the same time, I would like to share some of my dally 

This Is not meant to be a gossip column. I welcome responses 
from readers. For any erroneous statements, I will apologize. 
Let me emphasize that the material Is almost entirely opinion. 
Thursday, March 5 

Reliable sources tell me that some of the black and/or brown 
students being given scholarships or grants designated for 
minorities are actually from middle to upper class families 
and need the money about as much as a cat needs a cold shower. 
It seems that this aid should be given to minority students who 
need it. After all, being black doesn't necessarily mean that 
the person thinks black. The Black Panthers call Ron Karenga 
a bootlick. Being Mexican doesn't make you a Chicano if you 
eat tortillas as an exotic food. 

I recently heard that the athletic department gets as much In 
financial aid as the rest of the departments combined. 

Speaking of the athletic department, does the P.E. department 
spend more money on tape (as in to tape ankles, etc.) In a year 
than the entire budget for the geology department In the same

Bank of America responds to the burning of its Isla Vista branch. 
The Bank of America says: 

"We believe the time has come for Americans to unite in 

one cause: a rejection, total and complete, of violence as a 

means of political dissent." 

It seems that the Bank of America has set a double-standard. 
How can It expect to invest in enterprises which perpetuate 
violence, both here and abroad, and still remain exempt from 

being the victim of reciprocal action. I, for one, detest violence 
in all forms. I will not be so hypocritical as to tolerate it when 
used to my advantage but oppose it when I am its object. 

You've gotta lotta damn gall, Bank of America! What do you 
take us for? 

Warning!! I Beware lest you incur the wrath of the secretarial 
staff! From what I hear, it's the secretaries who really wield 
the power around here. If you cross a secretary It could mean 
forty lashes with a wet tongue.

Rumor has it that there are four narcs now enrolled at CLC. 
There are supposed to be three males and one female. Watch out 
kiddies, Big Narco is watching. 

By the way, does anyone drink alcohol at old Cal Lu? 

Is It true that the school has had to borrow money Just to 
pay the Interest on a ten million dollar loan? Why aren't we 
allowed to see the financial records. The students are the most 
important part of CLC and should have the right to this infor. 
Sunday, March 8 

This afternoon the food service served grapes at lunch. I 
know this wasn't the first time. I thought it had been established 
that there would be no grapes served at CLC In support of the 
grape boycott. I hope this doesn't happen again, and if it does, 
that the students will not eat them. People who are not familiar 
with the efforts of the UFWOC, or who do not support their 
goals, should be ashamed of themselves. 
Monday. March 9 

In a recent discussion with one of our administrators. 
I was told that while that administrator realized that hours 
were obsolete, the reason that they hadn't been abolished was 
because a procedure had to be developed by which such ques- 
tlons could be resolved. 

It seems that if they know that hours should be removed, and 
we know that hours should be removed, it should happen.

By Dennis L. Tobln 

I, awaiting Apollo's chariot 

stood self -stranded on headlands heights, 

like some passive planet 

which evolved from endless ether 

at the fancy of Divine delight, 

Silently staring beyond the sheathing sky 

this vagabond sought shelter, 

in the secrets of the unknown bonds 

slowly carried by timeless tides 

on unseen streams he drifted, 

past the childless being of Apollo's chilled eclipser. 

to the virgin Venus. 

I, in Aphrodite's arms, 

with automonous appendage applied, 

passed beyond the bounded borders 

and entered deep within life's darkest cavity 

seeking Eden's flowered fruits. 

I, alone, in selfish search of soul 

penetrated past that barren barrier, 

in a quest of knowledge 

unknown I sought the role of Zeus In life 

but found Instead, ironically, the mask of Mars In hate 

and the suicide of love. 

I, who entered where no other had, 

unleased that flow of blood, 

it was the vagabond's vlrtured vanity 

which caused that stream of youthful life 

to benignly bleed and meander past living shores 

to the stagnant seas 

of selfish security 

I, who quested knowledge 

gave no thought of love 

It was the wanderer who bred beliefs 

that knowledge was the Diety, 

a divine delusion, whose birth buried all who believed, 

"The fruits of Eden," 

cried the unchaste Venus to the vagabond, 

"are children of love and life 

not archers of Mars and vanity ..." 

And as the winged war wagon now slowly lit the air 

the mistress of knowledge breathed a bountiful breath 

to fill her lungs beneath her breast 

for her heart held life 

though a staining drop was shed. 

I, who gravely gave In, to geocentric genesis 

now lie vested in validity 

in vaulted valued chambers 

stiffened by vacuumed verbs and verse 

of maternal Mary 

for having raped righteous innocence 

for the belief of my own being 

I, who raped, grew to love, 

the vagabond he plucked the bud, 

the flower he stole from the stem 

and the flower's future fruit died in famine 

for though he cherished her, 

he foolishly did not nourish her In love 

and she denied him 

following faithfully, thereafter, 

those who brought her gifts of life, 

the love of life 

the life of love 

I, having now lost life's love, 

labored longingly to be liberated 

from my boundless bonds, 

but lost was life's love 

and love of life. 

as the vagabond grew tired 

in trying to find a thread of himself, 

despair descended deep 

into dark depths of disillusion 

in timeless tombs 

he longingly lamented 

in fine fibers 

of worldly words, without 

material menaing, 

those fears felt by him alone, 

his final fabric 

Eden's fruits were . . . 

Ideally like an iconoclastic image 

engraved with enduring love.

We took another poll and this time it was about 
college governance. From the response we got we 
could tell immediately of the deep concern for this 
issue. When 26 people returned the poll we knew 
right away that people who attend CLC are con. 
cerned, interested, and eager to state their views 
on campus issues. Many campuses are battling against 
apatny, but this campus has nothing to worry about 
— it was a hard fight, but apathy has won! Three 
cheers for apathy! You're doing great, gang - 
Keep it up — don't let anyone tell YOU that YOU 
aren't apatheUc — we know better! 

Our first question was "Do you feel that the 
class government is effective?" There were 5 yes 
answers, 20 nos and 1 don't know. 

Next was "Do you feel that class government is 
necessary?" The answers were 20 yes, 6 no. m ' °yi d y°"J iv * a vote of confidence to

Next we asked if the administration should have

Thirteen people said that they would be in favor 
of Hie implementation of a new form of college

(Continued from ftagfi 2) 

Now quickly this must come to a close. 
What prevents us from getting on? How do 
we become adequate for the task, and the 
happy use of our lives and our means? 
How do we follow the furrows which God 
cuts ahead over our fields? Let me mention 
three things, among many: 

1. We stand our best chance of achieve, 
ment of goals and purposes like these when 
we have a genuine pulsing sense of com- 
munity in and around CLC. So many of us 
have a stake here, and so many of us share 
the peril if we do not have it. It is my con. 
viction that this sense of community at CLC 
cannot be separated from the basic goals, 
the stated and inherent bias which we have 
and with which I am glad to be associated. 

2. We will become much more adequate 
for this task when we gather many more 
people of like mind to share what we see 
as our purpose. We already have many 
called Regents, Convocators, Alumni, Con- 
gregations, Friends. But the task is so large 
that it calls for even more who will be 
willing to join us in developing the best col. 
lege of the church we can. 

3. We will be able to get on when we are 
able to gather the money to support the 
human and spiritual dynamics involved here. 
What we have happening right now calls for 
more money than we have at hand. What 
Is yet to happen will test our resolve. This 
is part of the reason I have taken time to. 
night to refresh ourselves about the nature 
of this college. Only as we are confident 
of the worthiness of our task will we com. 
mlt ourselves and our fortunes to it. Let 
us join firmly with eacli other and set off 
down the furrow which our Lord is cutting 
aero** our fields! 

By Dr. John Cooper 

Since we gather together on these Monday mornings 
to express and pray for our concerns, especially as 
they pertain to this College, I wish again to address a 
few remarks to an area about which much has been 
said on our campus. Yet because It Is a continuing 
concern it deserves continuing comment. 

That to which I would like to speak is simply 
the position or stance of California Lutheran College. 
There are those who say we must be or become this 
or that type of College. We must change from what 
we are to something different. At times, it is indicated 
that this change must be a radical one, moving CLC 
into an extreme position centered about a point of 
view contrasting with the point of view of the founders 
or of those who have brought our college to Its 
present point In time. Some say we must decide 
whether we are to be a Liberal Arts College or some 
sort of reactionary institution, one or the other. 
As an intellectual body we cannot afford the error 
of making Incorrect comparisons. When we Indicate 
that a polarity exists with a Liberal Arts College on 
one end of a scale and a reactionary Institution of 
higher learning on the other we are on the brink of 
accepting a premise that paves the way tor just such 
Incorrect comparisons. In addition, we begin to play 
around with the definition of Liberal Arts and to dis- 
tort that definition. 

Accepting such a premise draws one Into a false 
assumptive area in which a Liberal Arts College Is 
conceptualized as the opposite of one that Is reac- 
tionary. This may or may not be true. If It is true it 
is unfortunate. I would hold that a position of polarity 
does not define Liberal Arts. 

To force the Liberal Arts Into such a position 
— an extreme position — is to Invite distortion 
and to deny the essential nature of such a College. 
We might conceive of a scale with liberal at one 
end and reactionary at the other. On such a scale 
a given Liberal Arts College might fall toward one 
end or the other depending upon how much bending 
nt its Doint of view had been done. 

Liberation of the mind through the Arts, Natural 
Sciences, Social Sciences and the Humanities is 
essentially the goal of a Liberal Arts Education. 
This is far different than being liberal In terms of 
one of the latter day definitions or Interpretations 
of the word. These latter day applications link 
liberal, as a term, with a more extreme point of 
view. It seems clearly demonstrated by contemporary 
phenomena as well as historical manifestations that 
extremism, on what I picture as a circular con. 
tinuum of extreme emphases, tends not to liberate 
the mind but to encase it. 

To truly serve the ends of a Liberal Arts College 
a more desirable Idea of position is one where we 
are not pushed into a polarized perimeter position. 
The world of polarization is truly flat and at the ex- 
tremes one has a tenuous tenure. Where we must 
stand is at the center of this circular continuum 
of extreme thought. This Is not to be confused with 
a middle of the road or indecisive position. In con- 
trast it is one of dynamic vigor and potential power. 
The vigor and power stem from the freeing of the 

mind, either cumulative or individual, to decide 
and re-declde. These decisions and responses are on 
the basis of a freedom of vision which encompasses 
all points of view surrounding the College without 
surrender to any one of them. Dynamism and power 
He In the freedom to create our own position. 
In like measure such a position does not mean 
withdrawal or non-involvement as a way of exis- 
tence. Rather the CoUege lives, In this concept, 
as the core or hub of a wheel, very much the center 
of many polarized expressions radiating out along 
the spokes to take their positions of extremity on 
the rim of the wheel. 

In this setting, the College literally holds fast 
to the truly Liberal - the liberation of the mind to 
contemplate, analyze, rationalize and synthesize - 
in order to push closer to truths. Those at the 
extremes fall short of grasping truth and substitute 
an emotional righteousness for It. In this day and 
age when the very mortal existence of man is threat- 
ened and his days seem truly numbered, In panic, 
we often flee to the essentially Insecure refuge of 
the extreme, seeking security In the blanket of emo- 
tional righteousness to be found there. We cannot, 
as a College, afford this kind of panic anymore 
than we can afford the error of making Incorrect 

The central position Is one of strength, but It 
required strength to maintain It. It is, frankly, 
sometimes easier to relinquish it rather than mus- 
ter up the strength to hold on. However, we, uniquely 
can look to a source of strength to allay our desire 
to run In the face of what seems a crumbling world. 
Our running will only add to the trembling of the 
earth and hasten a cataclysm, If one Is truly to be 
visited upon us. The strength that is present to 
make it possible for us to hold to a central posl. 
tion of power and freedom of thinking is our rooting 
in the spiritual truth. The Love of Christ Is the 
unique quality and essentially the only unique quality 
of which we can boast. 

We can run to the rim or we can stand. If we run 
we leave a void where once we stood. The strength 
that we might have developed to help our fellows 
on the perimeter will have been dispersed. 

Christ stood. He .stood at the center of the world 
as a man, but as the source of the truth as well. 
Despite the fact that some today would like to carry 
Christ out to the extremes and say, "This is where 
he stood," they do not succeed, for what they trans- 
port Is a diluted Icon of the Christ. For me, Christ 
is not some easUy transported, vest-pocket Messiah 
or a chameleon savior who alters his appearance 
to suit the whims of man. In spite of attempts to 
recast Jesus In the mold of the rebel or the reac- 
tionary judge, He sought no refuge In the extreme 
but maintained His dynamic and powerful position 
of truth and freedom where He could see and per* 
ceive all about Him. Despite His Involvements with 
those of the world He remained constant and they 
changed for the better. 

We can do no less than stand with Christ. To Him 
only can we surrender. Christ Is our constant. We 
may change and grow as a College In terms of the 
variables, but that Ciiange must always be mea. 
sured In terms of the constant . Christ, the Life, 
the Truth and the Way. In this lies our unique 
strength as a College.

Homo Sapiens 
The Wise One? a Poet comes 

Man is on this earth only as a result of 
an evolutionary process which began mil- 
lions of years ago and which will continue 
until long after this species has become 
extinct. Simply, man Is a product of nature 

— made by it, from it, and he must live 
with it. This is the balance of nature — 
a balance so fine that it can easily be dis. 
rupted even by natural phenomena, but can 
be destroyed by further, extensive aggra- 

For many years the Big Horn Sheep lived 
and thrived as a part 01 cue animal kingdom 
and as a link in the food chain, upon which 
so many other animals, including man, are 
dependent. This may not seem important 

— one extinct species. But there are 55 
species declining or In danger of extinction 
presently. Magnify this by the natural bio- 
logical worth of each, not man's use of each, 
and the problem created by Homo Sapiens 
becomes formidible. 

Or, what's a few million pine trees that 
are being destroyed by the actions of all 
of us? Do we accept this as a by-product 
of our technological society? Should we 
consider the risk of a massive oil spill 
more important than the ecological effects 
that the same might produce? 

In answering these questions we must con- 
sider man as the economic creature that he 
is. The idea is to take in much more money 
than is put out. There is nothing wrong with 
this until it becomes the overriding factor 
that governs one's life. Here, unfortunately, 
we have arrived at today's major problem 

— money. 

Economic achievements are immediate, 
but as anyone knows, these are short-liyed 
and also fairly easily renewable. This goal 
has taken precedence over long-range goals 

— ones which won't affect us — or will 
they? Should we all consider the long-range 
effects of disruption of our ecosystem or 
should we strive to keep a couple of dollars 
and forget it? The latter is occuring and 
we pass on the oil In the oceans, the poi- 
sons in the air, the filthy water, the pesti- 
cides In our mothers' milk, the pipeline 
being considered to carry hot oil from 
Alaska, the trash in the streets and our 
backyards. Do these things affect us like a 
dollar does? There is one thing for sure 

— the condition of health that these societal 
substances are producing to some, and will 
be mass-producing to the rest of us soon, 
no amount of money will be able to cure. 

Ther is no living thing which dare con- 
flict with the natural processes of nature, 
or else face certain death. "Mass mortal- 
ity in the Los Angeles Basin is predicted 
for 1975." This is the view of Dr. Frank 
Lysen, environmentalist. Each person should 
take it upon himself to respect our natural 
world, to feel guilt when this environment 
is disgraced by your fellow human beings.

On the evening of Tuesday, March 3, Mr. Toby 
Lurie, a poet of distinction came to CLC. Before 
an audience of approximately 30 or 40 people, 
Mr. Lurie read his captivating, live poetry. To 
many people that were fortunate to see him, it 
was an experience. 

Before he got into the poetry, however, he made 
some very interesting general remarks. He said 
that through poetry one can liberate language, and that 
was his main goal. The liberation of language. 
He said that language, poetry and prose, are res- 
trlcted as compared to the language of dance. He 
stated, "My poetry goes to the guts," and amazingly, 

it did. 

The first kind of poem he read was the conver- 
sation poem. In very precise wordings and timings, 
the poet read "Conversation Between Father and 
Son," and "Dow Chemical and Dow Jones," and 


He then moved slowly Into the sound poem, capti- 
vating his audience in his Vietnam poems like 
"One Boy has Died in the War" and "One Week's 
Dead." The latter, he said, was written after he 
saw the article in Life Magazine with the pictures 
of a sample week's dead soldiers in Vietnam. These 
poems have a long, slow ending. 

One word poems were next and very dramatically 
he reiterated the word "child" until it sounded 
like something else but yet sounded the same. 

The chanting followed with the audience divided 
into two different sections. One section would say 
"Under the sun" while the other said "There is 
nothing new." These two statements binded together 
by Mr. Lurie's encouraging words, resulted in a very 
unique and beautiful sound. 

At this stage someone in the audience suggested 
that the audience form a sitting circle around the 
poet and the idea of audience involvement material, 
ized with the ensuing chanting and unhindered verbal 
expressionism. To all Involved it was an important 
exchange of thoughts that had dwelt on the mind. 

To bring the experience to a conclusion, Mr. 
Lurie read an appropriate peom, "Goodbye," and 
with regret the audience dispersed. 

For those who are interested in hearing more of 
his poetry, he will be reading poetry at San Fernando 
Valley State later this month and if anybody is 
Interested in a permanent momento of Mr. Lurie's 
poems, look for a forthcoming album entitled 
"Word Trip." 

We thank Mr. Lurie for sharing his talent and 
experience with us here at CLC.

It's an idea! 

Let's put some "life" into life insurance 

That's what Lutheran students are 
thinking about . . . life. What's ahead. 
What good things are going to happen. 
A career. A wife. A home and family. 
And, believe it or not, life insurance 
from Aid Association for Lutherans is 
very much a living thing. First, it's 
the only guaranteed form of savings. 
You set your financial goal and com-

One Companys Position 

Isla vista, California, population 11,250. 
The business district consists of a couple of gas 
stations, a few small shops, some real estate offices— 
and a bank. A large campus of the University of 
California is nearby. All in all, a normal American 
suburban community— perhaps very much like the one you 
live or work in. Normal, that is, until Wednesday, February 25, 
when violence shattered the peaceful calm of Isla Vista. 

At about 8:30 p.m. on the night of February 25, 
rampaging demonstrators— students and non-students— 
protesting the "capitalist establishment" converged on the 
community's small business district. 

Several protesters rolled a gasoline-soaked trash bin 
through a smashed front door in a Bank of America branch 
and set it ablaze. Other students extinguished the fire. But 
just before midnight, with the angry crowd in a frenzy, 
the branch was set ablaze again. While police and fire officials 
were held at bay by a rock-throwing mob, the bank was 
gutted by fire and totally destroyed. A police patrol car was 
overturned and burned. Numerous other fires were started. 
Windows were smashed and life and property threatened. 

These events took place in a community called 
Isla Vista. They could have happened in your community. 
They can happen anywhere and with even more 
disastrous results. 

Why did the eruption in Isla Vista take place? 

Participants in the violence say it was a protest 
against the "capitalist establishment," "the war in Vietnam," 
"the Chicago trial," "student repression," "police brutality," 
and a list of other grievances against America in 1970. 
Some of these grievances are real, some are fanciful and 
others are false. But all deserve to be aired. To the degree 
that they are not aired, are not taken seriously, Americans 
break faith with their young. 

But all Americans, young and old, liberal and 
conservative, lose by violence. Violence and destruction are 
the seeds of anarchy and tyranny— whether it be the tyranny 
of the extreme right or the extreme left. 

We believe the time has come for Americans to unite 
in one cause: a rejection, total and complete, of violence 
as a means of political dissent. 

All of us, young or old, liberal or conservative, 
have for too long been silent on the issue of violence. 
We have been afraid of labels or slogans that would brand 
us as either arch conservatives or traitors to a liberal cause. 
Such sloganeering does all of us a grave injustice. 

Let us, as a nation, find once again our ability to 
distinguish between protest and revolt; between dissent and 
chaos; between demonstration and destruction; between 
non-violence and violence. 

Let us cease to condemn those who disagree with us, 
but let us also be prompt and resolute in putting an end to 
violence in our land. 

To this end we applaud the courageous response 
of many dedicated public officials. They deserve the 
cooperation of all citizens. They will have ours. 

Every American has a right to walk the streets in 
safety. No polemic should be allowed to obscure this right. 
Your wife or husband, son or daughter ought to be safe 
in visiting a supermarket, a filling station or a bank- 
regardless of whether another may choose to reject that 
institution as an onerous symbol. 

It is for these reasons that we re-opened our 
Isla Vista branch on Monday, March 9. We realize that 
there is danger in this course of action. But we believe the 
greater danger to ourselves and to all of the people in 
this nation is to be intimidated by mob violence. We refuse 
to be so intimidated. 

Is the branch worth this much? In monetary terms, 
the answer is no. It is not, and never has been particularly 
profitable. But it is there to serve the banking needs of the 
community and we refuse to be driven out of any community 
by a violent few. 

Is this a bad business decision? Perhaps in a narrow 
sense it is. But we believe that at some time and in some 
place Americans must decide whether they intend to have 
their decisions, indeed their lives, ruled by a violent minority. 

We are but one bank, but we have decided to take 
our stand in Isla Vista.

Consulate of the Netherlands and 
Mr. and Mrs. A. Bakker of 
Canoga Park were recent guests 
of Professor and Mrs. Bernardus 
Weber at California Lutheran 
College. While on campus they 
visited CLC senior art student 


Rick Rullman's design display in 
the College Union Building. 

One purpose of the visit was to 
provide van Lanschot, who is 
returning to the Netherlands in 
April, an opportunity to meet and 
talk with two CLC art students 
who hope to do advanced studies 
in the Netherlands. Meeting with 
the Consul were Rick Rullman, 
senior from North Hollywood, 
who plans to do advanced study 


in design and Mark Gulsrud, 
sophomore from Santa Monica, 
who hopes to continue his studies 
in pottery and ceramics. 

Professor Weber of the CLC Art 
Department is the originator of a 
program of advanced study in 
pottery and sculpture in ' the 
Netherlands for qualified 
students majoring in art at CLC. 
Professor Weber hopes to expand 
the scope and support of the 


program into other areas of art

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Plans for 
the largest student film festival 
in history, with the new spon- 
sorship of a major American 
business organization, the Jos. 
Schlitz Brewing Co. of 
Milwaukee, have been an- 

Schlitz is sponsoring the 
competition in cooperation with 
the American Film Institute and 
the National Student Association. 
The contest is aimed at 
stimulating the creative talent of 

young film makers on the college 
campuses of the country where 
interest in film is mounting. 

World premiere screenings of 
prize winning films, to be held in 
New York and Los Angeles in 
September, will highlight the 

Robert A. Uihlein Jr., board 
chairman and president of 
Schlitz, said the brewery would 
provide five cash prizes of $2,500 
each, 20 prizes of $500 each, and 
two Fellowships worth $30,000 

The two Schlitz Ff Hows will be 
chosen from those entrants in the 
competition who apply and 
qualify for admission to the AFI's 


Center For Advanced Film 
Studies in Beverly Hills, Calif., 
and will study for two years at the 

"Film is an exciting and ex- 
panding art which can inform, 
entertain and inspire an already 
turned-on generation of bright 
and idealistic college students," 
Uihlein said. "Film is the 
language of today. It talks in 
terms of what is happening now 
— to us — and we at Schlitz are 
delighted to be involved in such 
activity on the college campuses 
of America." 

Judges noted for excellence in 
their own fields — critics, film 
makers, directors, producers, 
technicians, and performers — 
will select the 25 winning films, 
each judge setting his own 

This year for the first time a 
major film journal will be 
published for distribution, free of 
charge, to every student at- 
tending the festival's premiere 
screenings and to every student 
taking a film course in a college 
or university. The journal will 
contain a wide range of articles 
by noted film authorities. 

This year's competition will be 
the fifth annual National Student 
Film Festival. Last year it drew 
146 entries from 44 colleges and 
universities. Due to the exploding 
interest in film on campuses, 
about 300 entries are expected 
this year. 

Rules, regulations and entry 
forms will be sent to college film 
schools and student film makers 
in early March. Deadline for 
entries is May 1. All entries must 
be 16 mm or 35 mm with optical 

Following the New York and 
Los Angeles premieres, similar 
screenings will be shown in 30 
other major cities and campuses. 
Then the show, consisting of a 
two hour package of award 
winning films, goes on the college 
circuit, to some 500 campuses 
across the country. There, 
student organizations will 
sponsor screenings. 

Schlitz also plans to show the 
film package to U.S. servicemen, 
here and abroad. 

NSA, the largest and oldest 
student organization in the 
country, founded the film festival 
in 1965. NSA has 450 member 
campuses representing ap- 
proximately two million 

Charles Palmer, Washington, 
D.C., president of the National 
Student Association, said, "We 
welcome and appreciate the 
participation by a major business 
organization, the Schlitz 
brewery, and by the American 
Film Institute in our student film 
competition. This support from 
business and the AFI will result 
in the largest and finest com- 
petition of this kind ever 
presented. We look forward to an 
exciting festival," 

National Academic Services, 
Inc., a student marketing group, 
will organize, promote and ad- 
minister the film festival on 
behalf of NSA. 

The AFI is headed by George 
Stevens Jr., Los Angeles. AFI 
was founded in 1967 as a non- 
profit, nongovernmental 
organization concerned with the 
motion picture in American life 
— in theaters, homes, libraries, 
classrooms and wherever films 
are found. 

Kinetic Art- 


By Gary Wooster 

The Kinetic Art, a series of three film programs, is 
coming to CLC. Each program consists of a number of 
animated, experimental, pop, doumentary, and 
dramatic short films gathered from recent film 
festivals including Cannes. Mannheim, Oberhauser. 
and Venice. The films have been made by master film 
makers and young unknowns from Europe, Japan, and 
Ihe United States. Critics have called it 'brilliant" and 
"fantastic." I call it indescribable. Something you 
won't want to miss. 
". . .a three-day minifestival. . .from innovative film 
makers around the world. . a brilliant assemblage of 
short creative films." Louise Sweeney. The Christian 
Science Monitor 

"Anyone interested in the possibilities of movies 
should not miss (The Kinetic Art). < 1 1 > represents 
some of the most interesting things being done in the 
field, things that cannot be duplicated in any other art 
form." Vincent Canby. WQXR Radio. New* York 

"There is a growing audience to which the quality, 
not the length, of a film is the primary concern. More 
impressive are the high standards of professionalism 
and creativity set by these independent film makei 
Benjamin Forgey. The Sunday Star. Washington. Da 

il was nothing shorl of fantastic 'The Kinetic 
Art' must be classified as a success. Among the 
conglomeration of hippies, avant garde fans and just 
plain curious people, there was a feeling of great ap- 
preciation for the excitingly different films. The 
audience even applauded after each presentation, 
after being shocked into a new world of movie 
making." The Daily Utah Chronicle 

"Artists and poets fit into the short-film genre much 
more easily than would-be novelists I hope that the 
series will persuade the good short-film directors to 
staj where the; are. and other artists, whose dreams 
are too cryptic and loo — well — too kinetic for other 
art Forms, to gel into the field " Vincent Canby, The 
New York Times

Kinetic Art-Program I 


By Joel Davis 

On Tuesday night the first of three scheduled 
programs of the Kinetic Art Festival was shown. Over 
five hundred people crowded into the gym to see a 
series of eleven short films that proved once and for all 
how inane, insane and totally meaningless the 
Academy Awards (given that same night) really are. 

Now, trying to write something halfway meaningful 
about any of the films seen becomes a nearly im- 
possible task. The greatest impact of the Kinetic Art 
was nonverbal, gutlevel and mindblowing. To try to 
make the nonverbal verbal is somewhat difficult, (e.g., 

ask a poet.) 
I'll not try to analyze any of the shorts from an ob- 

A scene from "La Ponune" , 
a contemporary French 
artist's impressionistic 
record of his happy life, 

jective viewpoint. All of them were fantastic, and any 
one individually was worth the price of admission. 
There were three, however, that especially impressed 
me. perhaps because they were the most dufficult for 
me to understand and thus maybe the most meaningful 

of the eleven. 

"Phenomena," by Jorden Belson, was totally non- 
verbal, entirely visual and completely captivating. 
There was no story line — it was merely a series of 
light'color patterns, phenomena in constant motion and 
change; it was truly "Kinetic'" art. Anyone who saw 
"2001: A Space Odyssey" will recognize, perhaps 
vaguely, what I got out of "Phenomena : that like the 
final 25 minutes of "2001" it was a light /color 
representation of phenomena or experiences that are 
several lightyears beyond those of homo sapiens. 
Or mavbe I'm wrong. Maybe it was just a well-done. 


From ET CETERA by Laterna Magika 

overly dramatized lightshow. 

Maybe it doesn't matter what it was, other than an 
intense experience of nonverbal phenomena. 

"Happiness," by Lothar Spree, lasted fifty-five 
seconds. The ethical and philosophical reverberations, 
though, are still (I suspect) echoing in about five 
hundred minds and will continue to do so for quite a 
long time. It is a simple "story" of a sad man looking 
for happiness, who encounters another man on a 
surrealistic field and receives happiness in the form of 
a coin, and who goes running off into the sunset 
screaming, "I'm happy, I'm happy, I'm happy. ." 
One must have seen it to have received the impact of it. 
though, and to have begun forming the tentative, 
somewhat ambiguous correlations. Again, like 
"Phenomena," the major impact was nonverbal. 
Unlike "Phenomena," where the impact was sensual, 
in 'Happiness" it is mental, intellectual, nhilnsonhiral 

But the heaviest one of the bunch for me, was "Why 
Uid Vou Kiss Me Awake?" A nude girl, with a hand- 
held camera, is filming herself in a mirror. She pans 
away, around the room. We (the camera ) see her lover 
slumped in a chair. We see the room. She carries us to 
the dresser drawer, opens it up. She turns us around 
and we get a tantalizing glimpse. . .and then we're in 
the drawer and it's closed and all is black for the rest of 
the film . while a man delivers in a slightly bored tone a 
treatise of the ontological implications of seeing and 
not-seeing — a speech that ends the denial of the 
existence of everything not seen. Meditate on it. 
HEAVY, i Because if the Voice is right — and we are 
the camera in the darkened clothes chest — and we 
cant see anything. ANYTHING, while the Voice 
sneaks — whowherehowandwhv is the Voice? 

There were eight others that were just as good as 

these three. There will be another showing, of Program 

2. Be there.

"Contempo 70" Plans Announced 

Plans for "Contempo '70," an innovative series of 
four concerts of 20th Century music featuring the Los 
Angeles Philharmonic and several important figures 
in the classical and rock music field were disclosed 
today during a press conference at the Music Center. 

Making the announcement were Zi.bin Mehta. music 
director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Frank 
Zappa, idmed rock musician and composer and leader 
of the Mothers of Invention, and Ernest Fleischmann, 
executive director of the Philharmonic. 

The concerts will take place May 3 ar.d 10 at the Ah- 
manson Theatre, May 15 at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion 
and May 31 at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus. 
Complete title of the series is "Contempo '70 — 20th 
Century Music. How It Was, How It Is." It will include 
the century's several phases of music, from works by 
the early masters — Bartok. Schoenberg Stravinsky, 
Varese, and Webern — to the music of NOW — Luciano 
Berio, Mel Powell, Morton Subotnick and Frank 

Zubin Mehta will conduct the first three concerts; 
Pierre Boulez. celebrated composer and music- 
director elect of the New York Philharmonic and the 
BBC Symphony, will conduct the final program. Guest 
artists are the Swingle Singers, Frank Zappa and the 
Mothers of Invention and Morton Subotnick. 

In a preliminary statement prior to the discussion, 
Fleischmann stressed the unprecedented opportunity 
offered by Contempo '70. "This is a splendid chance to 
get acquainted with the music of our time — to come to 
grips with the sounds of the 20th Century." he declared. 
"On Ma) 10 and May 31, Zubin Mehta and Pierre 
Boulez will show how Bartok, Schoenberg. Stravinsky 
Hid Webern lit (he fuse for the conflagration to come. 
I Hi Way 3 and May 15, we will experience the musical 
explosions of Berio, Powell. Subotnick and Zappa." 

Contempo 70" audiences also will be encouraged to 
participate in the programs. During a forum following 
each ideas may be exchanged among con- 
ductors, composers, guest artists and members of the

Zubin Mehta, 34, is in his eighth year as music 
director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, 
and during that period he has guided the Philharmonic 
to an enviable position among the world's great or- 
chestras through a unique relationship with the 
musicians based upon mutual respect and affection. 
Despite invitations from leading orchestras and opera 
companies across the globe, Mehta spends more time 
with his orchestra than most music directors. 

Mehta is extremely aware of the dramatic changes 
that have taken place in music and his influence in this 
direction is attracting growing audiences to his Los 
Angeles concerts. The especially large increase in 
attendance of young people is a credit to his unusual 
ability to program as well as his youthful outlook on 
music. The NBC television special, "The Switched-On 
Symphony," starring Mehta and the Philharmonic, 
illustrates well the viable present — and future — 
potential of a symphony orchestra under proper, 
visionary direction. The program provides a collage of 
music with ingredients drawn from classical, rock and 
folk artists and repertoire. 

Zubin Mehta was born in Bombay in 1936. A Parsee. 
he is descended from the ancient Persians who fled into 
India after the followers of Mohammed overran the 
Middle East during the sixth century. 

^ oung Zubin received his early musical training 
from his father, Mehli Mehta, founder and first con- 
certmaster. later conductor, of the Bombay Symphony 
Orchestra. Mehta recalls those early days filled with 

"From the cradle on, I heard chamber music. I 
became acquainted with Beethoven quartets before I 
ever heard a symphony, and could sing all this music 
before I could read a note 

lie began study ol the violin and piano at seven, and 
.it it) began conducting concerto accompaniments for 
his father. While still a teenager he was entrusted with 
the orchestra while his father was away touring. 

Despite this firm foundation in music. Zubin Mehta 
at one point cast aside this profession and entered 
medical school. Bui soon after taking his first MB., he 
returned to music Mehta then left for Vienna, where 
lie studied piano, composition, string bass and con- 
ducting at the Academy of Music while playing the 
violin and bass in various orchestras, and singing in 
choruses under great conductors, as well as attending 
a different opera or concert almost every night. At one 
time his heavy schedule included 12 courses taken 
simultaneously! Recalling his receipt of a diploma for 
conducting he observes, i always had (he intention ol 
becoming a conductor because orchestral music ap- 
peals to me most. Otherwise I would have been a 

The following year Mehta began conducting at the 
Musikverein in Vienna and. later, that year entered 
and won the first Liverpool International Conductors' 
Competition in a field of 100 contestants. Later, sub- 
stituting lor Eugene Ormandy. he became the 
youngest conductor to lead the Vienna Philharmoic. He 
was also the youngest man in history to conduct the 
Berlin Philharmonic He electrified the august Salz- 
burg Festival with his performance of Stravinsky and 
Brahms. At 25. he was invited to conduct the then 25- 
year-old Israel Philharmonic, and was asked to return 
at least once a year until their mutual 50th birthday. He 
is now that orchestra's Music Adviser, conducting 
more of its concerts than any other conductor. 

Numerous guest appearances with major orchestras 
led him to the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 1961 where, 
alter his first appearance, he made so profound an 
impression that he was engaged as music director the 
following year. He was the seventh music director in 
the Philharmonic's history, and at the age of 26. the 
youngest. His association with the Philharmonic also 
had further significance: A year earlier he became the 
music director of the Montreal Symphony Thus Zubin 
Mehta was the first music director of two major North 
American orchestras, a practice that recently has 
become more common. 

A highlight of this dual association came during 
Expo 67 in Montreal when Mehta conducted the two 
groups in a massed performance of Berlioz' Sym- 
phonic Fantastique. Mehta left the Montreal Sym- 
phony in 1967 to devote more time to his important Los 
Angeles duties In December. 1%4. Mehta led an 
historic concert featuring Jascha Heifetz to open I 
Angeles' elegant Music Center Pavilion, where the 
Philharmonic plays its winter season programs 

Outside Los Angeles Mehta has been a welcome 
guest with at least 20 major orchestras and several 
opera companies. 

During this period Mr. Boulez also became associate 
with the summer courses and festival at Darmstadt, 
Germany. In 1960, he was appointed a principal con- 
ductor of the Southwest German Radio in Baden- 
Baden He has also been a guest conductor of the 
London Symphony Orchestra, New Philharmoma 
Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam Con- 
cerlgebouw, Vienna Philharmoic. Los Angeles 
Philharmonic, and at the music festivals of Edinburgh. 
Bayreuth, Holland. Vienna, Israel and Ojai. As a 
conductor, he has become closely identified with he 
music of Berg, Schoenberg, Webern, Stravinsky. 
Bartok, Debussy, Schumann, Berlioz, Mahler and 
Wagner Among his own compositions are three piano 
sonatas, Pli Selon Pli, Soleil des eaux, Eclat, and the 
widely-perfomed Le marteau sans maitre.

was to become known as the "Domaine Musicale." 

The Mothers are dead. At least that was what the 
press release said a few days ago. To me the idea of the 
Mothers not gigging is an unmitigated disaster not only 
for the musicians, but more importanly for the 
audiences who will be deprived of good music. Frank's 
music strained the senses; it was music that made one 
think beyond British Blues, B.B. King riffs, or 
superstar ego-tripping and publicity hype games. 

Admittedly, Frank himself had much to do with 
killing the group. He wanted something his audiences 
couldn't give him. He wanted to be understood and 
( uinprehended as a composer and a musician, not a 
"pop performer." But, for a generation which has 
grown accustomed to flash, it was doubly hard to relate 
to a muscian if he played music without the trimmings. 

Apparently more people came to see the Mothers 
because of their visuals than because of their music 
They wanted a show, not to be exposed to a musical 
form which was far ahead of its lime. Laughing at the 
Mothers was the hip thing to do. The Mothers passed 
1 1 Mm the performing arena because Zappa's public 
expected him to act the part of the iconoclast rather 
than be one. 

Zappa is a serious, dedicated composer who wanted 
to do something more than entertain people. Perhaps 
he expected too much trying to have people listen lo 
rather than consume" his music. Audiences regarded 
Frank as a freak. Reluctantly, he realized that those 
who went to see him were interested only in telling 
their friends what he said to hecklers The show was 
more important than the music. 

His early albums, beginning in 1966 with "Freak 
Out" and "Absolutely Free," were bought more for 
curiosity than for what they said; something with 
which to terrorize parents Frank was committed not 
to turning people on to drugs, but to turning them 
towards sell -reflection and an awareness of their 
environment. Songs like "Plastic People.' America 
Drinks and Goes Home, " Trouble Coming Every 
Day." "I'm Losing Status At The High School, were a 
few ol his better known sociologically oriented num- 

In one of the lesser known pieces, "What's the 
Ugliest Part of Your Body'.'." we find these lines : 

All your children are poor unfortunate victims of 
systems beyond their control. 
A plague upon your ignorance and the grey despair 
ol your ugly life. 

Where did Annie go when she went to town 
Who are all those freaks that she brings around 

All your children are poor unfortunate victims of 
lies you believe 

A plague upon your ignorance that keeps the young 
from the truth they deserve. 

This furnishes us with a basic picture of Zappa's 
attitude toward his audience. 

In "Lumpy Gravy," the basic structure of the 
composition is fundamental to classical orchestral 
music; introduction of a theme, its subsequent 
restatement, and modification through the various 
instrumental void 

Typicalh . when the work was, confronted at all, its 
unil\ went unrecognized Rather, it was regarded as 
an assemblage ot diverse musical forms: open music, 
electronic music, theatre, aleatoric music (music b\ 
chance operation), and choral expression. Fur- 
thermore. Zappa s extension ol classical thematic 
technique through the use ot environments remained 
unperceived. Central musical statements in "Lumpy 
Gravy" were surrounded by sequences [whether 
music, speech, etc. I which by their very juxtaposition 
were intended as modifiers. The original statements 
reveal themselves lo their fullest only when evaluated 
within their musical climates. A similar attitude of 
approach would be useful with regard to the material 
lo be presented at Pauley Pavilion May 15. 

It would be ironic indeed if the disbandment of the 
Mothers achieves what Zappa himself could not ac- 
complish. . .focusing attention on what was and con- 
tinues lo oe his most important concern, the music.

Well, a lew. Maybe. But to restructure the entire

the prerequisite is total dedication to getting it done. 
And I don't think that there are even 100 people on

consequences are not so easilv recognized and 

Let me exemplify this bv use of a recent event. CLC 
BEACH PARTY at Westward Beach, an area we may 
refer to as a part ol the commons. The organizing part v 
either failed to organize a clean up following the event 
or 1 1 such a group was organized thev failed to follow 
up. for the following day the beach was still littered 
with the debris from the CLC BEACH PARTY. It may 
have been assumed by the organizing group that this 
lunction would be taken care of by the state services 
from Zuma Beach but this is an over assumption on 
their pari, since such services are limited to say the 
least at Zuma itself. 

We max usethis event to follow the Hardinian logic 
m a manner somewhal along the following lines: 

1) The positive component is a function ol profit 
mentally and physically gained from maximizing the 
commons while exerting the minimum amount of 
energy into the system while extracting the maximum 
from it 

This will yield a utility component of nearlv plus l 
wine minus the exerted energy). 

2) The negative component is a function of how this 
profit takine affects the commons and since tin 
spread over I he entire community which utilizes its 
resources, tins function of utihtv is a fraction of -l i., 
any particular individual. 

If this path is followed, one quicklv observes thai it 
is un-eeonomic. both menlalh and physically, not to 
maximize (he use of the commons ii viewed from an

L) The positive componenl a function ol thedegri i 

of involvement of the individual and also of the degree 
to which the involvement regulates the manner in 
which the individual maximizes the utilization of the 
commons. Directly in proportion to these degrees ol 
variability the component of utility will range to an 
upper limit of plus 1. 

Tin negative component is a function of these 
dcurees of variability and a function of the variabilis 
in the collective body of individuals who are Utilizii 
the commons This component may therefore range 
from plus 1 to -1 depending upon these variable.factoi 
It this second path is followed and a select or ehic 
cross section of individuals are surveyed (such as 
those who would comprise the membership of a clean 
up committee i then the sum of the J components will

Again quoting from Hardin. "Each man is locked 
into a system which compels him to increase m a 
world that is limited Ruin is the destination towards 
which all men rush. " The BEACH PARTY and its 
lueni kick of policing may not lead to ruin, but it 
may impair CLC position oi environmental influence

tura s only 4 year college and asjhe major establish-

positions this educational Institution is capable of 
exerting pressures to bear of sufficient fbrci

This may seem .i very trival event and problem, but 
it is a link in the environmental chain of life equal to 
anj other form of detrimental environmental 
Utilization A chain of any type is only as strong as its 
weakest link and I hope that we are not members of the 
ik environmental link. We can not assume that this 
Earth is incxhaustable' 

It is our responsibility to utilize what we have in the 
know ledge that it is exhaustable and irreplaceable to a 
maximum degree with the minimum detriment as 
nnssible to the future status of the commons 

from Hardin again. "Freedom in a commons brings 
ruin to all Education can counteract the natural 
tendency to do the wrong thing but the inexorable 
succession of generations requires that the basis for 
this knowledge be constantly refreshed." Let ns 
therefore be refreshed from this one minor incidence, 
realize that "EVERY LITTER BIT HURTS" and 
accept our responsibility to the commons.

The opening of the new Coffee House (alias "The Barn") 
was held up slightly while Mr. Fred Wolf, director of 
the College Union, tried to decide which branding

The Coffee House at California 
Lutheran College is now open for 
CLC and community use, ac- 
cording to Fred Wolf, Director of 
the College Union. One of the first 
groups to use this building was 
the Community Leaders Club on 
Monday, April 6. 

The Department of Biological 
Sciences of CLC will present an 
overview of the department of- 
ferings as the program. 

The barn which is being 
transformed into a rustic coffee 
house was given by the Janss 
Corporation. The College moved 
it onto the campus to its present 
location adjacent to the College 
Union Building. Renovating is 
taking place slowly with plans for 
rustic furniture, wagon wheel 
lights, and brands on the wooden 

During the Spring Quarter, the 
Coffee House will be kept open by 
the College Union Board from 
about 5:00 to 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. 
weekdays — possibly later on the 
weekends. The kitchen will be 
manned by College Union per- 
sonnel with coffee and soft drinks 
available. Some entertainment — 
both from off-campus sources 
and students — will be planned 
for the weekend nights. 

The College Coffee House will 
be available to off-campus 
groups desiring an informal 
atmosphere. The College Union 
office will handle such requests.

On The Earth 

The massive "Teach-In on the Environment" 
scheduled to take place on more than a thousand 
college campuses April 22 offers dramatic hope that 
further destruction of our planet may be stopped, 
according to Senator Gaylord Nelson (D., Wis.), the 
man who started the project rolling. 

Writing in the April Reader's Digest. Sen. Nelson 
recalls that he first proposed the national en- 
vironmental teach-ins in a speech at Seattle last fall. 

"We expected the response to be good." he writes. 
"It has been tremendous. A thousand colleges and 
univ re expected to participate, along with 

hundreds of high schools; civic groups, garden clubs, 
the League of Women Voters and conservation 
organizations have also offered a helping hand to make 
the day a success." 

Already, (he Senator says, the movement to protest 
tun her damage to the environment "has produced a 
series of small miracles in college communities an 
the nation." University <>i Illionis students pulleu 
tons ol refuse from a creek near the Champaign 
campus. Washington, D.C. law students brought legal 
action recently to force the transit authority to reduce 
pollution from its buses. Texas University Students 
managed to save -nine trees that the university had 
planned to cut down. Students at the State University ol 
New York prevented the bulldozing ol a 50-acre marsh 
on the edge of the campus. All of these "miracles" 
have been accomplished peacefully, the Senator notes. 

While local projects will form the major focus of the 
April 22 Teach-ins. Sen. Nelson suggests that the 
concerns voiced on that day may lead ultimately to 
"some radical changes in our national habits." 

"Are we prepared, for example, to make economic 
modifications in our system to reverse the disastrous 
trend. . .to dispose of disposable bottles. . to levy some 
kind of tax to assure that junk cars are collected and 
recycled. . .to say to the oil companies that they must 
not drill offshore. . .to develop a land-use policy, to say. 
'You must not destroy anymore'?" 

The Teach-ins will help to dramatize these questions. 
But April 22 will be a success only if it sparks "a 
national commitment to do something," Sen. Nelson 

day Teachin 

"We have met the enemy and they are us." 

Recent history proves that student concern 
can move establishment mountains — inclu. 
ding the new one now poking through the 
Biosphere. This is why ecologically-aware 
colleges and universities across the U.S. 
are currently being contacted by a new 
company called "Earth First." 

The people at Earth First feel that stu- 
dents have emerged as the true leaders of 
the '70s, and student commitment to the 
environment may be the only thing that 
will save the earth. 

Alrady, students are taking positive action 
by sampling waters, reporting industrial 
infractions of antipollution laws, and by 
organizing "teach-ins." Positive action in 
another direction must coi
